CORONAVIRUS CRISIS

As you are aware the President and Committee have already announced the cancellation of our usual range of summer events. We continue to review the situation for the future and will keep Members updated.

An updated list of local garden centres and nurseries is available under the News page, for easy reference. They are all open again with safety measures in place and some on limited hours. Many offer a delivery service.
