Garden Helpers Wanted…
It’s been hard work in the community garden over the last few weeks and the vegetable beds are really beginning to spring back into life.

For more information email: firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s all Covid safe and tools, tea, coffee, cake and rhubarb will all provided!
