In normal times, before the Covid-19 lockdown...

Garden 1 generally had meetings in the winter and outings in the summer (see Dates for Your Diary). In winter the group met on the third Tuesday of the month at Ely Library, 2pm for 2:15pm.

Garden 2 met on the last Thursday of each month, from 2.30 pm at St Peter's Church meeting room, Broad St. Ely during the winter with outings in the summer. A £10.00 sub covered the cost of venue hire, speakers and refreshments for a year from joining. Prospective members could attend as guests for a £2.00 fee. For more information please call coordinators Sheila Abbott or Joan Wall or use the message button on this page.

Botany Group met on the 1st Monday of the month, either on a field trip or 10-12pm in the Communal Room, Militia Way. The group had a varied programme that should appeal to anybody with an interest in plants. Sue Holgate and Helen Moore coordinate the group, if you are interested send a message to Sue through the message button on the group page.
