Sheila Harris Chair of Travel Group Committee April 2019


The Gardening at Whirlowbrook group will need a new leader from March 2020.  This is a very rewarding role, as it involves the ongoing maintenance of SU3A’s beautiful Commemorative Garden.  Members of the group meet on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month except in bad weather.  We are helped by staff from the Council’s Parks Department and the Ranger Service.  Only an average knowledge of gardening is required.  The role can be shared with others and you would receive a lot of support from 20 group members.   It is not essential to be present at every meeting.
