Regrettably coronavirus means we have had to cancel our regular coffee mornings at Notcutts Garden Centre at 11am every third Wednesday of the month (excluding December) and Cherry Lane Garden Centre at 11am last Wednesday of the month (excluding December) until further notice.  We look forward to resuming normal service when advice suggests that it is safe for us to do so.  In the meantime remember we can still talk on the phone, or contact us by email if you need us.

See our October 2020 newsletter below.
