Looking ahead: dates for your diary

Refining ideas and maintaining the paths: at Abbey Gardens, it’s perfectly normal to find innovation and gardening going on in the same space. On a very chilly Saturday we’ve been shovelling bark mulch (very popular: it’s a great way to keep warm…) and seeing Torange’s London Met students’ ideas related to a wider project looking at the border between garden and station. It’s all part of looking ahead – and with events and meetings lined-up, some dates for your diary:

November meeting: Saturday 3 November at 2pm
Our monthly meeting at 2pm, open to all who are interested in the progress and running of the garden.

Abbey Gardens Winter Chill: our FREE Winter celebration for all ages: Saturday 24 November 4pm-6pm
Warming winter drinks, seasonal songs, festive cakes and wrapping paper and candle-making workshops – watch this space for details!

December meeting and EGM: Saturday 1 December at 2pm
December’s monthly meeting is also an EGM (Extraordinary General Meeting) to vote on the Charity Commission’s amended paragraph for our constitution.
