Mon Apr 23rdUrban GardeningI have been asked to restart the Urban Gardening Group which use to operate. We could do visits to local gardens, places of interest and maybe swop seeds, cuttings and advice. Having looked at the very busy programme the U3A runs, I have decided to meet on the last Monday of the month. Due to a holiday, I suggest the introductory meeting to be held on Monday 23rd April at 11.00am at the Rocket at the bottom of Putney High Street by the river, behind St. Mary's church.
Please could you let me know if you are interested in joining the group by clicking on the pigeon icon on the Urban Gardening group page.
