Garden Group

All meetings start at 10.30 till 12.00. Trips out will generally be an earlier start leaving from the Flash car park. Venue for meetings with a speaker will be confirmed but hopefully will be in Welshpool. Please note that meetings begin at 10.30 when we have speakers. Tea and coffee will be available. To cover cost of venue and speakers we pay £10.00 a year. So far this has been sufficient to cover our costs. We have been told that we can leave our cars in the Flash car park as long as we leave the area in the front of the Flash clear when going on outings. This means that all trips out will start from the Flash.
