First Meeting 17th October Update
Firstly many thanks to you all (18) for attending our first meeting last Wednesday and apologies for some of the content and for keeping you so long.
I hope you found some of what was said to be of use to you, although there are concerns regarding the use of the chemicals mentioned, so please read instructions and use personal protective equipment when necessary.
I appreciate that some of you would prefer to go ahead with forming a management committee, but as mentioned previously I suggest we have a few more meetings before deciding this, after all we don’t want to frighten people away.
Since at the outset, some of you wanted a club that shared ideas, produce, plants and seeds, and not to get bogged down with a bureaucratic organisation!
I would appreciate your views regarding the way forward, along with ideas of what you would like to discuss at the next meeting please, my e-mail address is Roy.email@example.com
If you know of anyone outside our immediate area who would like to come along to our next meeting, then they are welcome.
As regards our next meeting, it will be at 7:30pm on Wednesday the 21st of November at the Village Hall, although if you would like to discuss anything specific prior to this then there’s always the coffee morning at the end of this month.
Notes from meeting:
Sulphate of Potash sweetens tomatoes.
Hughes and John top soil supplier.
Epsom salts (Magnesium Sulphate) improves plant growth.
Gardening Group Beginnings
We are planning informal monthly get-togethers where we can share tips, ideas and maybe swop plants over a cuppa. To be held monthly in Llanteg Hall and are for amateurs — so do not think you have to be knowledgeable to come along — all you need is to be interested!
If you would like to come along, become involved or know more please contact Roy James 831468 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Initial meet up was at the Coffee Morning in Llanteg Hall Friday 31st Aug. 10.30am to gauge interest.
There was a great turnout at the Coffee Morning today with almost 30 people popping in – though a few might have turned up for info on the proposed new Gardening Club!
===New Llanteg Gardening Group to be set up===
After a really good turn-out at Llanteg’s Coffee Morning, plus messages from those who could not attend, we have around twenty people who showed an interest so have decided to proceed and set up a Gardening Group.
The premise is to share ideas and information, be it on fruit, vegetables and flowers or on other gardening topics such as how to build raised beds or set up a polytunnel. It does not matter if you have a large or small garden, or no garden a all. Maybe you just do tubs or have houseplants.
Roy commented that he is also a novice but interested in learning and finding out more. We could possible have some talks and maybe even visits later on.
We can decide the format of our meetings as we go along.
It will be good to get-together to share ideas and maybe produce and seeds etc. We are open to ideas and suggestions.
The first meeting is planned for Llanteg Hall on Wednesday 17th October at 7.30pm.
We do not plan to have a formal committee etc but will have to ask for a small contribution each meeting to cover hall rental – this will probably be £1 or less depending on how many attend.
There is also a blog at – https://llanteggardening.blogspot.com/ and a ‘Llanteg Community Gardening Group’ Facebook page.
