2022 Events Programme

From February 2022 our evening meetings will be held at Greenhill Methodist Church hall (Church | Greenhill Methodist Church | England) - see photo below, taken as we set up for the first in person meeting since March 2020. The large hall at the church has been refurbished and modernised during 2020 and is a very suitable venue. There is car parking for about 18 cars in the car park at the back of the church and on-street parking on School Lane and surrounding quiet roads. The address is School Lane, Sheffield S8 7RL. Please note that we will not be providing refreshments for the time being so please bring your own.

Our 2022 garden visits programme is now finalised. Members will be emailed the list with full addresses for member's gardens on the list.
