What's on

Our irreverently named Weekly Witterings is our attempt to keep volunteers and supporters up to date with forthcoming events.

When lockdown happened, we followed the Government Guidleines to the letter. From no work at all, to working in pairs and now in groups of six we’re reclaiming our gardens from the ravages of lost time. Weeds have been weeded, plants have been planted and Himalayan Balsam bashed!

Our long term volunteers (I daren’t say old) have been joined by new, willing recruits and the results are there for all to see. However, Mother Nature never stops and so we’re always looking for help.

Our bee and butterfly friendly plants across our gardens and re-wilding area in Rawtenstall cemetery are helping the poulations of both to thrive.
