HIDDEN GARDENS: Saturday 30 June. We will be holding our successful Hidden Gardens event again this year, to raise funds for The Glasgow City Mission and Alzheimer Scotland. It is a relaxing day where members of the local community can wander round a variety of gardens with refreshments at the Church.
We are looking for any new gardeners who would like to take part in the day by sharing their garden with friends, neighbours and others from the community. No garden is, too small or too big, lawns do not need to be perfect, weeds are allowed and a knowledge of the names of all the plants in your garden is not required but would be very impressive if you could.
If you would like to take part and share your garden, please contact either: Fiona & Ian McMillan or Eileen & Stewart Young through the church office (0141 942 8827, email@example.com)
