Coffee Morning on 28th March cancelled

The last coffee morning of the winter season, due to be held on Saturday 28 March, has been cancelled due to the isolation/social distancing measures we are currently all taking part in.

Coffee mornings will resume on the last Saturday in October, all being well.

Gardeners’ Club News

The Gardeners’ Club are highlighting two forthcoming events – open to non-members too. The full year’s calendar of Gardeners’ Club meetings and events can now be accessed from their web page reached via “Clubs and Societies” on the menu

22nd October 2019
The breadth of plants available to gardeners today owes much to plant hunters of a bygone age. Brian Gomm will explain the role of Reginald Farrer amongst others in introducing new plants to Britain and particularly around his home in Clapham.

26th November 2019
Lowther Castle gardens have recently been the subject of a project to recapture and restore the 17th century layout together with layers of later design. Local historian, and supporter of Dales ponies, Janet Niepokojczycka will share with us some of the history and the more recent work of the Lowther Trust in producing a stunning visitor attraction. 
As the club is celebrating its 30 year anniversary, this meeting will include a Jacob’s Join light finger buffet and wine instead of the usual mince pies. Former members are most welcome.
There is no meeting in December.
