STONE NESS WALLED GARDEN
We have an active social calendar , with an annual Open Day with visitors coming to the garden to meet our gardeners, see the on-going projects and enjoy fun , games and Phil's famous BBQ. There is the end of season 'Get-Together' held in the Potting Shed and Jean Burgess our Project Manager thinks up lots of competitions and fun activities during the sessions.
CHILDREN IN NEED RAMBLE
Each group took part in a sponsored ramble or as we called it the 'Ambling-Rambling-Scrambling' event. This was tailored to the capability of the groups and as we are fortunate to have a variety of terrain we managed very well and raised £100. Children in Need thanked us and sent a certificate which we will display in the Potting Shed. Jean (who is very creative) wrote a song which she sang as we had 'Pass the Parcel'
The new season for the Walled Gardeners starts the week beginning 4th March 2019 - if you or anyone you know would like to join one of our groups or perhaps visit first, please let our Project Manager Jean Burgess know.

CHRISTMAS TREE CHOOSING DAY
24TH NOVEMBER 2018
The gazebo was put up- tables put in place and decorated with festive table clothes, fairy lights twinkled, and the home grown organic apple juice put to warm with welcoming spices.
We were all set to welcome people who could park up-then walk in our plantation of Christmas trees (Nordman Fir and Norway Spruce) then choose the one for them. The trees were grown by the Monday afternoon group who have lovingly tended them for 5 years. They looked at their best - all named and labelled and we sold 39 trees. These were collected over three sessions and were either cut or with roots.
Then to the serious business of mince pies and warmed mulled apple juice which despite the inclement weather made for a jolly atmosphere.
We would like to add our thanks to the local newsletters for carrying our advert, many tree were sold from this.
This is 'Billie' who was decorated in all his finery and what a fine tree he is!
