A staggering £316 worth of plants flew out of Beryl’s garden last weekend: Well done Beryl and many thanks to her generous U3A Gardening group!
Last Friday, Liz Egre and Lesley Hopkins raised £90 for HHPS funds with a pop-up and socially-distanced sale in Connaught Road.
David Singleton’s fuchsias formed part of a sale organised by Anastasia the same weekend. Kerchingggg! another seriously impressive £125!
This weekend, starting tomorrow and lasting 3 days, Beryl will be selling from her home to her local U3A gardening group, all the while maintaining social distancing.
And finally, advance notice of Heather & Carol’s sale to be held on Saturday 23 May in aid of the NGS special ‘Help Support Our Nurses’ appeal.
In spite of current levels of hope surrounding relaxation of lockdown, the committee has decided to cancel the booking of the URC Hall on 30 May. It was felt that it would be too risky to members and public alike, even if permitted.
Many thanks to Su who had the publicity in hand, and Beryl who has been nurturing plants all year since the last sale. We would love to see comments, or receive suggestions by email as we consider options for reducing the stock of plants and boosting our income.
