Slades Garden – What’s on in 2018


Winter Picnic at Slades
We’re planning a big day for fixing up the fence around the veg patch!
Sunday February 25th from 10:00 until mid-afternoonish.
To make a nice day of it we’ll provide some refreshments but if you have something you can bring along that would be great. If you have any tools that you think might be useful for removing long staples from fenceposts or straining fencing wire, that would be fab. Other tasks will be available, so please come along.
