Please involve as many people as possible in the planting

Please remember the weekend of 3rd, 4th, 5th May will soon be upon us so be encouraged to decide what you would like to do asap

Please be encouraged to choose whichever day over the weekend suits you best (it might be for many that during or after the Sunday service is most appropriate)
