Call-out for calendar pictures

Were producing our first ever calendar so send us your favourite pictures of Abbey Gardens. Funny vegetable sculptures, wonderful wildlife, comedy carrots – pictures that tell the story of our gardening year. Please email your high-resolution JPEGs to a href=mailto:lydia@thornley.co.uk Lydia/a by 3 November. And if your pictures contain people, please make sure that theyre people you know and can contact so that they (or if theyre children, their parents) can give us written permission to use their picture. Well put pictures up in the cabin on 6 November for votes at the monthly meeting.

Monthly meeting

Our monthly meeting will be on 6 November at 2pm in the cabin. Or if were feeling particularly-hardy, outside.
