The Community Garden Group has been meeting on every Tuesday and Thursday from 10am to Noon. This has been extended in 2020 to cover 5-6 sessions each week but with limited numbers to manage the COVID risks.
The Garden is not currently open the public although that is one of the objectives of the group - we do run about 3-4 Open Public Days each normal year!
