Please leave a reply to let us know if you can come.
I am very excited about Tuesdays meeting as we have John Garrod giving us a presentation of the secret gardens of the City of London. The talk is precursor to our planned outing to see the gardens for real on July 4th. we hope lots of you can join us.
Get Baking – Saturday is the annual Hampton Carnival held on the green. We have a stall which this year will be dedicated to edibles so we need plenty of cakes and jam to sell. This is one of our main fundraising events and helps us raise funds so we can book better speakers and guests. Last year we one the Best Stand lets see if we can do it again this year.
