Working Bees

The summer 2016/17 season was completed on 30 April 2017, by which time around 200 plots in the Anglican and Catholic sections had been cleaned and tidied. Working bees are now in recess during the winter months and we will reconvene on the following date:

Sunday 12 November 2017, 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
All are welcome and there’s lots more to do!

What to bring:

  • Good quality gardening gloves
  • A drink bottle
  • Sun protection
  • Kneeling pads
  • Your favourite weeding tool (trowel, fork etc)
  • Old toothbrushes.

Wellington City Council is providing buckets, shovels, loppers, secateurs, rakes, brooms, dustpans and brushes, appropriate scrubbing brushes and scrapers and woolsacks/fadges.
