On Saturday 10th of May we will be launching our gardening club “Growing Friends”! The gardening club is one of the programmes part of our BIG Lottery grant and is predominantly aimed at people aged over 50.
The goal of the club is to offer local over 50s the opportunity to become more physically active through supervised gardening activities. The club will also be a social club, with lots of opportunities to meet others while enjoying a cup of tea or other refreshments in the historic environment of the garden.
“Growing Friends” will first run on a monthly basis (first Wednesday of the month) but as membership grows will become a more regular activity. Members can develop the club to how they want it to be and we encourage members to organise other gardening or non-gardening related activities. Membership will be £3 per visit (to pay for refreshments) and there are discounts for subscriptions paid in advance. Members will also have the benefit of discounted organic foods from the garden.
