  • Welcome to the Garden Visit group Valerie-Anne.

    Keep an eye on the Calendar within the group to see where visits are planned for the year. I also list them in Events as some require RSVP.

    Addresses for the visits are sent out the week before via email to your actual email account (whatever you have provided to the BLF site) - they don't turn up in your Private Messages.

    Let me know if you have any problems. I'm happy to help :)

  • welcome Valerie- Anne :)
