Upcoming Events

Here's three forthcoming events/activities, all of which have a 'plant' theme, which may be of interest to you:
  • first, Friday February 10th, Kinder Kids Pre-School is holding a coffee morning 9-12noon at St Matthews, with home-made cakes etc., as a fund raiser to help bring the planned St Matthews Community Garden project into being. The garden, complete with herbs etc. will be an added resource for the youngsters attending Kinder Kids but also for the wider community and will brighten up the currently dull riverside aspect from St Matthews. Kinder Kids have had some grant success for the project, and done a good deal of work, but need more resources and aim to have termly coffee mornings as part of the effort to raise more funds. A poster's attached. It's going to be a cold morning so why not cheer yourselves up, in good company, and support this worthwhile project?
  • second, Hayfield Civic Trust is hosting a talk, after its brief AGM at 7.30p.m., at the Village Hall Wednesday 22nd February, by Elaine Radford on 'Flowers of the Peak District'. It's often not appreciated just how varied the Peak District flora is: this is your chance to find out - and maybe highlight some recent discoveries of your own!
  • the following Saturday, 25th February, Sustainable Hayfield is organising a work session at the community garden, surrounding the library, 11-1.00p.m. The focus will be on seasonal maintenance tasks, pushing on with the composting area and pruning of raspberries. Do join the volunteers if you'd like, and contribute a little time and your ideas: just turn up or, if you wish, contact Ellen Bennett on 01663 747627 in advance.
