Halton Gardening Group
The Gardening Group was established in 2012 with the aim of providing a forum to share information, swap plants and gardening know-how, and to improve the local environment of the village of Halton.
Members have taken on specific projects and successfully enhanced areas in the village such as the walkway to The Centre @Halton from the High Road, the Memorial Garden, entries to the village, the Burial Ground, some of the areas around The Centre and some grass verges. A planter was installed near the bus stop opposite the top shops sponsored by the Halton Hydro.
A very successful Garden Safari was held in the village in June 2017 and this has raised funds to continue the planting habit in Halton.
Ideas for the next stage of planting are in development.
A successful plant sale fund raising event was held at the United Reformed Church in May 2016.
We are planning another sale next year on Saturday 19th May, from 10.00am – 2.00pm. This will be in the form of a Plant and Craft Sale at the Centre. Halton Gardening Group will have several plant stalls. The remaining tables can be booked at £10 each by contacting Maureen at the Centre Office tel: 01524 811316. We especially welcome stall holders selling crafts or plant related items.
Meetings are held in the Coffee Shop at the Centre on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 9.30 am to 11.30 am. All are welcome. You don’t need any gardening knowledge or expertise. We are keen to involve all sections of our community, and we are open to ideas and suggestions for individual and community benefit.
Contact either Janet Theobald (Secretary) on tel: 01524 811419 or Ann Wilson (Chair) on tel: 01524 811684 for more information on the Group.
