Good Friday Coffee Morning 2022

How lovely it was to be able to hold our first Coffee and Cake Morning since the start of the pandemic.

During the morning, Kathryn demonstrated how to create beautiful hanging baskets using a number of different types of basket. Everything used including the plants, baskets and compost can all be purchased from the Hut as very reasonable prices.  

A raffle was also run with five prizes which was drawn by our Chairman on Easter Sunday.

Powis Castle and Gardens – Saturday 15th July 2017

Our July trip took us to Powis Castle near Welshpool in Wales, the seat of the Earl of Powis, the castle is known for its extensive, attractive formal gardens, terraces, landscaped estate. The gardens were a real delight at this time of the year with all the boarders in full bloom. I have visited the estate a number of times over that last few years but I think this time of year is by far the best to seem them in there full glory with the plants set against the enormous clud pruned yew trees

Inter Society Gardeners Quiz – Tuesday 4th April 2017

Four members of the Association Katheryn Green, Malcolm Greenhalgh, Dave Hemingway & Tony Addison took part in the inter society gardeners quiz against teams from both Roby and Whiston gardeners. It was a close run thing with Newton leading into the last round. Unfortunately although the answer was on the tips of our tongues non of us could recall the answer to the very last question letting in Whiston to win by a single point. Still a very enjoyable evening
