A short reminder that our first Coffee Morning of the year is being held this coming Sunday, 4th March from 10:00am until Midday. We obviously have no idea what the weather will be doing by then, but you can be assured of a warm welcome, hot tea and coffee and a bacon buttie to cheer you!
One important fact you need to be aware of, is that the codes for the gates will be changed during the course of the Coffee Morning. An email with the new code will be sent to you separately later in the week. If you have any problems with the gate and the padlocks please contact a member of the committee.
Nick Lord, Chairman.
Yes its that time again when we ask all our membership to volunteer if you can and take part in our first working party of the year. The event will take place over Saturday & Sunday 17 / 18 February. 10:30 till 12:30 & 13:30 till 16:00 on both days. Chris our site Manager will be coordinating the work, which will mainly be focused along the southern hedgerow, but other tasks around the site will need to be undertaken, time permitting. Members are requested to bring their own tools (Pruning Saws, Shears, Hedge Trimmers, Clippers, axes and some safety gear gloves etc). It would certainly help to get as many members as we can during the weekend to undertake the work in hand. Whether it be for one hour, one session, one day or both days all members time will be really appreciated and enable us to get the site ready for the season ahead.
Oh and yes, sausage baps are on the menu both days during the lunch hour and will be available for the working teams. We really need your help, so please come along if you can spare some time. Hope you can join the party and look forward to seeing you there.

Thank You for your support.
The details for this trip were sent out last week and to confirm the coach booking we need to know how many people are going by Sunday evening (5th November). Please could you email Pat Meloy as soon as possible to book your seats.
If you have been on site in the last week you will have seen that we have had deliveries of compost, located at either end of the site now. Yesterday we also had a delivery of wood chippings which is ideal material for pathways etc. We are very fortunate that these supplies are donated to the Society and so you as members are able to take advantage of these FREE materials. There is no guarantee that there will always be a supply of free compost etc and we are very lucky to have the contacts with the local horse owners and farmers who supply and deliver it.
I am sure everyone appreciates it and I hope if you can, you have signed up for the Harvest Lunch on SATURDAY (21st October) and the Working Party that will be going on around the lunch. The full details have already been published on previous posts and on Facebook. It is not too late to order your lunch, check back on previous posts for the menu and email the Secretary with you order.
The committee look forward to seeing you on Saturday and appreciate your support.
