We’ll meet at the bottom of the main path where it crosses the Green Chain Walk.  Come along and help create some pockets of sunshine for the new year, adding to the ones we planted last year.

Bring a trowel or small shovel, and gloves.  If the weather is anything but steady rain, we will have a go!
