Covid-19.

Because of low attendance at our recent Zoom meetings  we have decided not to hold any more over the summer.

The latest round of covid restrictions means that the Village Hall will not be available for our July meeting.  Very kindly Julie and Peter Mitchell have offered to host a visit to their extensive garden in Pant the same day, July 15th at 6.30 pm. The limit on numbers attending imposed by covid rules means that it will be for club members and their friends only. Full details can be obtained by emailing  trefonengardenclub@gmail.com. 

We hope that you will still find this website a useful resource for both the Club’s activities and for other related gardening information.

Plant and Produce Sale

Saturday 28th August 10 am Trefonen Churchyard, to coincide with the Hill Walk weekend.

It will be a plant and produce sale in the open air in the same place as the successful plant swap table that has been running since April.    Please consider contributing plants and garden produce, ensuring that all plants are rooted, in clean pots and clearly labelled. You can bring your contribution from 8.30 am so that everything is set up by 10, and volunteers to help run the stand would be useful.

All revenue wil be for the Hill Walk charities and you can find information on them and the Hill Walk weekend on the website www.trefonen-hillwalk.com. If you come to the plant sale you’ll  be able to walk too.

Open Gardens

Kay Kimber is looking for people in Trefonen or Treflach willing to open their gardens over the Hill Walk weekend.  If you’re willing to take part from 1 pm to 5 pm one or all of the days please contact: bobnkkimber@btinternet.com or 01691 679646 for full details.

Plant Swap Table

A plant swap table will be set up in Trefonen Churchyard on 15th April, and run throughout the summer. Any monetary donations will be welcome, and they should go in the collection box for Trefonen Hill Walk charities in the village shop, the Hill Walk having been moved from May until August Bank Holiday weekend.

Outings

We hope to resume our outings as and when it’s safe and appropriate.  The NGS garden visiting season is almost upon us and we will try to keep members informed about local attractions. There is a possibility of a trip to RHS Bridgewater in Salford in late summer as a day trip. Whether members would be happy to travel by coach by then we don’t know and would welcome your views on this.

Access to information on past events can be navigated to by scrolling down to the links at the bottom (in the dark area) of this and every other page. They can also be navigated to, from the appropriate year Programme page, and clicking the link in the “Info” column, appropriate to the meeting.

Following the success of the club’s participation in the Heritage Exhibition September 2019 in theTrefonen Village Hall, the club will be encouraging members to include and increase sustainable gardening techniques  for the future benefit of the environment. Click here to see a photo of the stand.

The committee extends good wishes to all members, their families and friends in these difficult times. If you have any comments or queries, please use your normal contacts including the phone numbers on your membership cards or email trefonengardenclub@gmail.com and keep safe.
