About Twigs

I am a Project Organiser for a local charity called * CSV/RSVP which is situated in the South West of the UK.

I take great pride in the Garden Club and also as we are now entering another phase of this project, we are starting a new Twigs Garden Club set ready to go in another area of Poole. This gives more members more choice of dates and activities, plus a bigger social circle of friends !

We began with just a few basic ideas, over time these have been tailored to the needs and wishes of everybody and as an Organiser for CSV/RSVP it must be emphasised that club members are not volunteers nor expected to become volunteers unless wishing to do so.

Here are some of the highlights of Twigs:

We are always pleased to welcome new members, including online ones.
Apart from browsing my blog [we love to read your comments] perhaps you might also like to come and join us once a month at one of our meetings for a spot of social garden chat over a refreshing cuppa and a slice of naughty homemade cake! We also produce a quarterly Newsletter, have raffles and monthly plant swaps to name but a few and you never know what you may go home with.

Should anyone feel they have an hour to spare and would like to start a Twigs Project in their local residential area please contact me for a quick chat by emailing deetrish12spot@gmail.com

Mosquitoes in Poole?

Gardeners are a fairly hardy bunch so we're used to being bitten by midges and little flying critters, even so it's hard to believe that here in Poole mosquitoes are becoming a problem also, but it's true so be careful especially if you have an allergy.
There's even a link to check on the mosquito levels in Poole, Dorset at: http://www.accuweather.com/en/gb/poole/bh15-1/mosquito-activity/330357
