CONTINUING - COOPERATION WITH OTHER LOCAL GARDENING CLUBS
We are trying to bring added benefits to our members and increase cooperation between ourselves and other local gardening societies and clubs. For example, we are going to exchange programmes and details of special events with other local garden clubs. See our Newsletters, and our Notice Board at meetings, for details of other clubs’ programmes of talks, shows and special events.
