Muriel explained about Leominster News, it is a monthly local magazine. Muriel has made some enquiries and we could place two articles every month to share with the community what we do at the Forbury and possible invite local communities to join in the projects. Jill and Muriel will ask everyone’s consents to put pictures in.

The sandwiches are made from our own grown herbs and cucumbers, and we are able to enjoy our own salad!!! We must say a big thank you ONA to what she has done. And all the same to Marius to watering the plants and looking after the water feature.
