Store closure 12th May

We are sorry we were not open on the 12th May. This was due to us not having enough volunteers to open it. We will be open as usual this Sunday. We can always do with more help, so if you can give us a hand on Sundays ( you don’t have to help every Sunday) please come and speak to one of our volunteers.


Trading Store 23rd April

Get ready for summer!

If you don’t have a greenhouse, you can still grow tomatoes, chillis and other vegetables outside against a sunny wall. We have growbags that you can buy to plant them in. We still have good stocks of onion and shallot sets ( including red ) that you can plant directly in the ground, and have large produce in autumn. We also have seeds in the store and the usual fertilisers, compost and other items ( we had a big delivery the other week) A final note for those wanting to rejuvenate their lawns, we have grass seed, topsoil and lawn feed with moss killer, with colder, wetter but still warm weather coming our way this could be a good time to do the repair work !
