OIRA organises several events per year, which are publicised in the newsletter and on the News page of the website. They usually include an open gardens afternoon, tea on the towpath, and a children’s Christmas lantern parade. You don’t need to be a member to come to events.
Five gazebos are available for short loan and cost £5 to borrow. Contact Jude Carroll.
