Early Summer 2014 Update

A big welcome to all our new members, we've had quite a few people join in the last month or two!
All members are invited to attend the garden this Saturday (June 7th) when some light gardening and tidying will be taking place between 10am and 12 noon.
Our new benches have been ordered and will be here later this month (finally!) and the other garden items will also be here shortly :-)
The GARDEN EMAIL ADDRESS IS NOT WORKING so please direct any emails to myself or a committee member. I will confirm when the issue has been resolved.

Finally, there is a new Community Organiser covering the Oxford Road area, her name is Freya, Freya can be contacted here if you have a community project you would like to start or see happen then speak to Freya and see if it can happen!
