We will be at the Scout Hut opposite the café in Central Cross Drive from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm.  Plants will be supplied by Dundry and Hoo House nurseries and by Cheltenham Horticultural Society and Friends of Pittville members, and proceeds will go to the new play area and to Friends of Pittville funds.. There will also be a Butterfly Garden stall, seed planting for children, a gardening book stall and a raffle.
