Return to this year
Gardening Group Pennine Link

    This group meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 9.30am for coffee and chat in the Methodist Church Hall on Church Lane Marple. The meeting is from 10am - 11.30am.
    The cost of £1.50 includes coffee, rent of the hall and payment for the speakers.
    This is a more practical gardening group as we have speakers who provide practical hints and advice as well as those who give illustrated talks on commercial and private gardens, N.C.C.P.G and on growing more exotic plants such as Orchids.                                                                                                    

Do come along and join us.
