Charlton Community Gardens have been in touch with a couple of dates for your diaries (and  they also have a new website):

Gardening party Sunday 6th October 2-4 pm
This is the first of our regular gardening sessions planned for the first Sunday of every month. Those that use the station regularly will have seen 2 more raised beds installed and the newly planted wildlife-friendly garden. There’s still plenty to do before winter is upon us, so please join us any time between 2 and 4 pm this coming Sunday 6th October at Charlton Station.

The jobs that need doing include:

  • planting spring bulbs
  • clearing shrubs
  • planting currant bushes
  • tidying and clearing the raised beds
  • planting winter veg

We have some tools and gardening gloves if you don’t have your own.

Open Day
Our next open meeting will be on Wednesday 23 October in The Old Library at Charlton House from 7pm We plan to have stalls featuring local projects as well as the usual Plant Sale and raffle. Come early to visit the stalls before the formal meeting starts at 7.30pm. The first part of the meeting will involve planning for the Highcombe site and will also consider how the station garden might develop. This will be followed by a quiz–questions on both gardening and Charlton. Please get in touch if you can spare some time to deliver flyers door to door in the next couple of weeks.
