Wednesday 22nd March
Please call in to the Vicarage at Penallt any time between 2.30 and 5pm for a tea party to raise funds for the EAST AFRICA CRISIS APPEAL.
Bring anyone and everyone and let’s raise some funds to help these children in so much need.
Donations of cakes would be most welcome, but if we only have tea and biscuits it is more than these people have had for a long time so come and give your donation. If you can’t come, please drop your donation through our letterbox.
Let’s open our hearts and our purses and share our concern by gathering together and making a difference.
Thank you and I hope to see you on Wednesday.
The Parish of Trellech and Penallt
Saturday, 18th February 2017, 10am to 1pm (limited places available)
£12 per ticket which includes the course and refreshments/soup lunch afterwards.
Robert Boyle will be running the pruning course.
Robert was trained at Pershore Horticultural College before going into commercial nursery work for a number of years. A period in private estate garden management followed. More recently, he has run his own organic fruit growing enterprise and plant nursery near Monmouth with his wife.
Robert will bring some trees and soft fruit bushes for sale on the day. All he requires of you is to bring as many sharp pruning tools as you can. Also, a few additional steps or pruning ladders could be helpful but he will be encouraging everyone to carry out as much pruning as possible from the ground.
- formative pruning of young trees
- renovating older mature trees
- common pests and diseases
- soil fertility
- fruit varieties for domestic growing
For tickets, please contact Rosemary Decker-Thomas, telephone 01600 860085
Run by The Babington Educational Trust – all proceeds will go to fund further events.
