This is an open invitation to all gardeners and willing helpers to get some fresh air and join in a Working Party

SATURDAY 26th June, at High Leigh Conference Centre, Lord Street, Hoddesdon, Herts EN11 8SG

Please bring:

  • Garden tools and equipment (if you have them — otherwise we hope others bring some spares to lend and sanitiser wipes will be available to cleanse spare tools for others to borrow.
  • Loose, comfortable clothing.
  • Sensible footwear (wellies* or strong shoes). We may use some volunteers to clean out some of the Pulham feature ponds and others to clear pathways and cut back overgrown vegetation.
  • A drinks container
  • PPE for going into the building (using toilets etc.)
  • Good Sense of Humour! Sun cream and Sun Hat! (I am praying we get fine weather for this.

Hopefully, we can work together to get the grounds and garden areas back to a tidy state by the end of the day, ready of the official re-opening for conferences on 3rd July . COVID has been cruel in terms of business for the Christian Conference Centres up and down the country.

You may get to have a short tour of the house highlighting some of the recent changes at some point in the day.

START TIME 9.30 am Please report to reception and arrive promptly for briefing and allocation of tasks.

Hot and cold drinks provided. Barbeque Lunch and tea.

If you are interested in this action-packed day, please register your interest in this exciting event by sending me an email to christinebarclay176@btinternet.com by Saturday 19th June.

I hope that we can get a good team of volunteers together and I look forward to seeing you on the day if you can make it.

Many thanks,
Chrissy Barclay
