Garden af­ter­noon at Quaker head­quar­ters

The Scarborough News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS -

Scar­bor­ough Quak­ers are hold­ing a garden af­ter­noon with a plant sale and Ques­tion Time with a panel of lo­cal gar­den­ers on Satur­day May 26.

It will take place at the Friends’ Meet­ing House, Quaker Close, Wood­lands Drive.

The plant sale will start at 1.30pm with the Gar­den­ers’ Ques­tion Time from 2-3pm. The event will close at 4pm.

Dilys Cluer, who is one of the or­gan­is­ers of the event, said: “We need to raise more money for the Quak­ers, and the pro­ceeds of this event will be split equally be­tween the lo­cal meet­ing and the na­tional Quaker body (Bri­tain Yearly Meet­ing) which sup­ports Quaker work both at home and abroad.

“Our Quaker Meet­ing House in Scar­bor­ough is re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated by the many groups which meet there as well as by our­selves, but as it is no longer new it is need­ing more re­pairs. Both the heat­ing and the hear­ing loop sys­tem re­quire im­prove­ment and this all costs money.

“We hope that peo­ple will en­joy the in­for­mal Gar­den­ers’ Ques­tion Time (which is free) and spend a bit of money with us on plants and re­fresh­ments.

“There will also be an op­por­tu­nity to swap su­per­flu­ous seeds.” Ad­mis­sion is free and all are wel­come.
