Hockley Heath Gardening Club – Why not join the team?

The volunteers in Hockley Heath Gardening Club have been brightening up the village for over 15 years. Each year the group plant up over 30 planters and planting areas. We work closely with the Parish Council, who support us financially. There are currently seven active members.
If you have any spare time and would like to join our team we would love to welcome you. The time commitment is very flexible. We meet up about four times a year and agree who will be responsible for each of the displays, then individuals will plant up and look after their allocated areas at a time that suits them. You do not need to have previous gardening experience. If your time is limited, but you would like to get involved, you could just adopt an individual planter to look after.
