Everyone likes a nice garden and with spring on the way, now is the time to come along to Gardening club and pick up some great ideas. You don't have to be knowledgeable; most of us do it for fun, relaxation and we love gardens, flowers or vegetables! So please come and join us at 7:45pm (for 8:00pm) on the third Tuesday of every month at Tackley Village Hall. We have speakers on various subjects.

Why not come along and see if you like it. We are arranging a trip to Ball Colegrave, Bunkers Hill and in May we have a Plant Sale with the added advantage of a car boot or outdoor table top sale.

All are welcome, along with your ideas. See you there!!!!
