Build a Bug Hotel

Monday 11 November 2019

Would you like to make a Bug Hotel? Come along and build your own.

Bug Hotel

There is a £10 cost for non-members (includes the Hotel and materials) although it would be lovely to have a large selection if you have anything in your garden such as: dried grass, straw, bark, twigs, broken slate, pieces of wood (drilled with holes), canes or cones of any sort. Ensure canes and wood are cut to no more than 5 inches in length .

Hotels need to be ordered in advance so numbers with full payment to Angela by Friday 25 October.

Venue: South Marston Village Hall        Time: 7:30pm to 9:30pm.

Parking: Old Vicarage Lane, next to the school.

Cost: £3 entry fee on the door as a visitor or £12 for annual membership.
Pop along and chat with members and enjoy homemade cake and a cuppa along with an optional raffle. A warm friendly welcome awaits you.

Luscious Lawns – Monday 7 October 2019

Lawn Care for Perfect Lawns by Geoff Hodge

British lawns are renowned across the globe as being the best of the best. Or are they? Some are in desperate need of some timely TLC, especially after recent adverse weather patterns and years of use and abuse.
So, if your lawn isn’t the green, green grass at home that Tom Jones would be proud of, Geoff Hodge shows you how to ensure it stays luscious, thick and green.

Good enough to make your neighbours green with envy.

Venue: South Marston Village Hall

Time: 7:30pm to 9:30pm.

Parking: Old Vicarage Lane, next to the school.

Cost: £3 entry fee on the door as a visitor or £12 for annual membership.

Pop along and chat with members and enjoy homemade cake and a cuppa along with an optional raffle.  A warm friendly welcome awaits you.
