Calling all green fingered parents - we need your help!
We have been very lucky to have been offered help by the Melton Rotary Club to revamp our raised beds and greenhouse area and to create a peace garden. We will begin work next Friday, 23rd September at 2pm and need as many pairs of enthusiastic hands as we can get! We are going to start by clearing beds and doing some general tidying up.
If you could spare an hour to help us out, we would be incredibly grateful. Please bring your own spades, secateurs, tubs and forks as we don’t have many to go around!
