THE Elderberries Gardening Club is set to spring back to life after 18 months, with members eager to return to the club – but they are hoping that new faces will join them too.
The group meet from 10.30am-noon on the second Wednesday of every month at Saint John’s Church on Saint Johns Road in Birkdale.
Shelley Lewis-Lavender, chairperson, revealed that she has been inundated with new enquiries.
The club offers talks from guest speakers, trips to historical houses and gardens, visits to see local gardening specialists and social events such as a Christmas lunch in December.
Shelley said: “It was lovely to see so many new members join the club as many people have discovered their love of gardening during the pandemic. Some clubs have struggled to survive but the Elderberries is growing from strength to strength.
“Autumn is on its way and we have the dark nights ahead of us let’s hope we can bring some cheeriness through the Elderberries to keep us going and we get back to our old routines soon.
“Gardening for well-being is one of the best reasons to get out in the garden. Your physical and mental well-being vastly improved and its free.
“You don’t even have to do any gardening, just being out in the fresh air amongst the trees and flowers will increase your feeling of well-being and your mood will be happier and calmer.”
