Morning Get-together at Falls Farm

Falls Farm, Cagney Way, Lesmurdie

After their pruning in winter by members, the roses were looking extremely healthy and full of but at the September meeting, and it was thought that members may like to have a morning 'get together' to view the heritage roses when they are at their best in Springtime. Join us to have a relaxing morning to mix, view beautiful roses, and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee together. Please bring a plate to share with your cuppa. It would be appreciated if everyone could help with the set-up and clean-up at the end.
