Guerilla Gardeners

This is a scheme run by Rob McIntyre to renovate the Station Gardens and to maintain the planters around the village. It is also involved in clearing around the war graves in the church yard.  Every little helps on such schemes so if you have an hour to volunteer, even as a one off,  please come along.  Check with Rob for dates but we usually meet on Saturday afternoons for an hour or so.
