Our Chairman, Simon Baynes will be giving an enlightening talk to Gardening Club members. If you would like to go along as a visitor (the visitor's fee is only £1), you will be very welcome. The Hall itself dates from 1912 and apparently is of historical interest. As parking at the Hall is limited, it is suggested you park in the village car park and walk the remaining 200yds. There will be a raffle and tea.
I’m sure you will agree that there is something there for everyone and I look forward to chatting with many of you at the events. Montgomeryshire membership continues to grow and anything you can do to help promote WHGT and its work will be appreciated. Thank you for your continued support and enjoy your membership,
