A wide programme of events in the Gardens during Summer 2018.
Everyone is invited to our 2018 AGM in the Upstairs Room at The Moorside Hotel, 131 Marsland Road, Sale at 7.30pm on Wednesday 27 June.
In addition to hearing reports and electing the Committee, there will be an interesting talk by Steve Wright, a member of the Japanese Garden and Society and a familiar person to most of you. It promises to be a good evening, though, so make a note of it come and have a glass of wine (or soft drink) with us.
Many thanks to Sue, Steve, Martin and Rob for giving up their Saturday morning on 19 May 2018 to plant some very large mature azaleas and fatsias in the Gardens.
The Friends Group would like to thank Green Vision Garden Design for their donation of turf. The Friends Group will make good use of this in the Gardens!

The next workday is on Saturday 26 May 2018 starting at 10am and finishing no later than 1pm, with a break at half-time for tea/coffee and a bite to eat!
Go to the Projects page for some information about the work done by the volunteers.
