Are you interested in gardening, growing your own fruit and vegetables and meeting up to chat with like-minded neighbours?

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 roy.james1536@gmail.com

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.
