Siam Gardens.

A big hello to all who stopped at our stall in the Town Hall! It was lovely to meet so many people interested in joining us to help make Sudbury greener.


Why not pop along to Siam Gardens this Friday, 10 March, to say hello and see what we do? We will be there at roughly 10:00 – 11:00am, before moving on to the raised beds outside the entrance to the Kingfisher Leisure Centre at around 11:00-12 noon. The edible bed needs a bit of a tidy up and we will take a fresh look at the wildflower bed.

A quick reminder that Darren Lerigo’s talk is on Sunday afternoon, 12 March at the Quay Theatre – it promises to be an interesting and useful talk. We hope to see you there.

Siam Garden


A crisp, frosty morning in Siam Garden was perfect for working up a gentle ‘glow’, as we tidied and swept, and picked up dog poo… Some signs have gone up reminding people that they really need to pick up after their dogs!


Thanks to all who came along. Join us next time, if you can!
