Epping Forest

We have decided to curtail all meetings of the group until after Christmas. The Group normally meets once a month (September to June excluding December) to enjoy a lecture or demonstration followed by refreshments. There is also a plant raffle and display of alpine plants. In the summer months the group arranges visits to gardens, wildflower sites or national plant collections.
