For Gardens Trust and County Gardens Trust Members

Wednesday 6th November 2019, 10.30am-4.00pm

Quaker Meeting Rooms, Union Walk, Frodsham Street, Chester CH1 3LF

An opportunity for Gardens Trust and County Gardens Trust members to meet each other and discuss ideas, skills and questions. The Agenda will allow for discussions on CGT experiences of Conservation, Outreach and Research & Recording. We will also hear from the Welsh Historic Gardens Trust, on its recent projects and successes.

Meet Ups are free to attend and are open to all members of any CGT and the Gardens Trust, no matter where in the country they are held, and no matter the attendees’ current level of involvement with their local gardens trust. A friendly and informal atmosphere encourages all to join in.

Come and learn more about the varied and valued voluntary work undertaken by CGTs.
