On Saturday 28th May 2022 the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre are holding a Next Generation Fair Sustainable Living Expo and the Craven Arms Community Garden will be open to the public in support of this event.
The event will have lots of children’s activities, dancers, music, dog show, food stalls and many displays and demonstrations about protecting Shropshire’s biodiversity.
The Sustainable Living Expo will be held on the Onny Meadows and the Community Garden will be open for visitors to walk through and enjoy our wonderful space.
Refreshments will be offered to visitors to the Community Garden in order to raise funds for the Community Garden.
Another date for your diary is Saturday 28th May when the Craven Arms Community Garden will be open to the public from 11:00 to 16:00 in support of the Onny Meadows celebration event held by Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre.
More information on this will be provided as it becomes available.
The CACG AGM 2022 will be held on Saturday 26th February 2022 starting at 2pm in the Methodist Hall, Craven Arms. The postcode for the Methodist Hall is SY7 9ND and will enable you to find it on a map.
Members are reminded that their Plot Fees are due and can be paid at the AGM.
The Plot Fees have been held at the same level as the previous year and as a guide:
small plots are £5 per annum
large plots are £10 per annum
Where plots have been joined to form double-plus plots then a higher fee does apply and the fee is the same as last year.
It is a condition of membership of the Craven Arms Community Garden that plotholders contribute to the ongoing maintenance of the communal areas.
Throughout the Covid Pandemic it has been necessary to carry out maintenance in an ad-hoc manner rather than the normal Tidy Days. We are very grateful to those members who have made contributions to the maintenance throughout the Pandemic.
