Addingham School Garden

In memory of Jane Gregory we have decided to name our school garden Mrs Gregory’s Garden. We have lots of plans for spring but it needs a bit of tlc. 
It’s got very over grown over the holidays and the bark chips we have down to suppress the weeds etc needs replacing. We are having a working party after school next Wednesday 25th September from 3:30 onwards. We aim to clear all the bark chips (hopefully) by 6:00. Depending on weather too!
I’m extending the invitation to the committee and members of AAGA to pop down and help us in this task. It will be brilliant to see you there. Bring a wheelbarrow if you have one and a rake/spade. 
Many thanks
Gill Trudi and Lydia
