Do’s and Don’ts for Garden Group Members
You will receive an email reminder 2 weeks before each visit.
DO reply to emails to let organiser know whether, or not you are intending to go on a visit. If you don’t reply, we don’t know if you might turn up. Garden owners like to know numbers 7 days in advance to prepare refreshments. It is, therefore, vital that you let me know at least 8 days before the visit whether or not you are coming.
If you know that you are going to be away or unable to come on the second Monday of the month just let me know beforehand.
Members not on email will be provided with a schedule of gardens to be visited and are expected to phone if they want to be included. Or they can provide the Coordinator with stamped addressed envelopes if they require reminders.
DO let organiser know if circumstances change and you can’t go.
DO turn up rain or shine. It isn’t fair on garden owners if you stay away because of the weather. They will have made cakes in advance. If they cancel that’s different. If you think a visit is likely to be cancelled due to poor weather, please check your email before setting off.
DO wear sensible shoes and take a stick if helpful. Many gardens have steps and slopes.
DO offer to give the driver some money towards petrol if you accept a lift. 20p per mile divided among the occupants of the car is suggested.#
