11am: Community Garden Open Day
Town Council Offices, Chipping Sodbury
The garden is behind the Town Council offices. Access through the building or via the gate on the footpath between Horseshoe Lane and Hounds Road.
Please come and join us for tea, coffee and cakes and a fundraising tombola.
The Sodbury in Bloom group are a small band of volunteers who are keen to welcome newcomers.
They meet 10am on the first Thursday of the month in the community garden behind the Town Council Offfices.
They are also looking for people who might be willing to keep an eye on their local patch, cutting weeds back or planting bulbs as appropriate.
If you have green fingers and fancy enhancing your local patch, please get in touch.
The Sodbury in Bloom logo was created by Sophie Press from St John's Mead Primary School as part of a competition.
It's really important that everyone in Sodbury feels part of Sodbury in Bloom, so if you have ideas for what you'd like to see, please contact Julia Bernau at: or Pat Fryer on 01454 853736.

The Sodbury in Bloom Clean Up Team meets several times a month throughout the year to carry out regular litter-picking in and around Chipping Sodbury.
If you have any time to spare you would be very welcome to join us whenever you can, as a one-off, once a month, or more regularly for what is basically a walk and a chat whilst making a big difference to the look of the town and the environment.
