It is that time of the year again when our members come together and celebrate the festive season!! Our celebration took place on 24th November.
As gardeners we all love to hear the sound of rain falling on our garden except when you you are holding a celebration in the middle of your community garden. The heavy showers didn’t deter our celebrations and the community joined us to enjoy the delights on offer. Whether you were enjoying a coffee in our cafe or a sausage from the barbecue a great time was had by all with the sound of jazz adding to the atmosphere.
We were joined by the Rochedale Girl Guides who distributed pancakes which were made from their recycled fruit tin hotplates! Apart from our craft and plant stalls there were also visitor stalls participating in our celebrations including Inspiration Garden and the Bee Man.
Of course it wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit from “the man in the red suit” and like last year he arrived on the decorated ride-on mower handing out sweets to the children and the “big” children as well!!
On behalf of all the members at Rochedale Community Garden we wish you the compliments of the festive season and we all look forward to “growing in our community garden” in 2014!
