Yesterday I spent an hour or so checking out the latest public notices. As research goes it was a very pleasant task, in the pre-spring sunshine, and I got the distinct impression that Woodhall Spa is waking up from the winter.
The Woodhall Spa and District Gardening Association is leading the way with three upcoming treats for the horticulturally inclined:
- On February 15th Bill Smith will be on hand with a talk titled “Mr Mole and unwanted Guests.” It’s at St. Peter’s Church Hall at 7.30pm. Entrance is £1.50 for non-members, and that includes refreshments.
- BBC Radio 4 gardening guru Bob Flowerdew will be at the Petwood Hotel’s Woodland Suite to talk about “No Work Gardening” on April 15th at 7pm. Tickets tickets for this rare opportunity; cost £10.
- There’s a coach trip to the Harrogate Spring Flower show on April 21st. The trip costs £28 including the entrance fee of £16. The coach will pick up from various points in the village, arranged when you book. The return journey time is 4.30pm
For further details and advance booking for all these events please ring Sharon Witherall on 01526 353851.
