Spread the word…
Please come and join us, bring your friends and family, and if you have a chance to print out and put up our poster, we would be most grateful.
Lend a hand…
If you would like to volunteer on the day, we would love a hand putting up marquees, welcoming people on the gate, showing people round the veg gardens, hosting kids activites, serving refreshments and clearing up at the end of the day. Please email email@example.com with the times you would like to help out (anytime between 8am and 6pm).
We’re also having a children’s picture competition, which has a fabulous 1st prize of a digital camera and runners up will win bug catchers and seeds for the garden or window box. Children should bring the drawing along on the day to qualify.
