Working parties are held every Tuesday morning. It's not only a time to carry out routine care and maintenance of all the flower beds and displays, but a chance to meet with our friends and passers-by to catch up with the local gossip. We have even been know to retire to the Red Lion or the Library Cafe after a morning's work to quench a well earned thirst.

Volunteers are always welcome to join us, even if it's only for the occasional morning. At planting times, we are grateful for all the help we can get. Some volunteers adopt a flower bed or planter and take on the general maintenance at a time convenient to them.

SIB is a very friendly and welcoming organization. If you would like to get involved with physical work, administration, plant design or in organizing fund raising events, please contact a committee member.

We are still hoping to set up Saturday or ad hoc groups in 2017 to spread the work and collaboration throughout the community. Our job list is wide ranging and to cover any aspect via new recruits would be great. Please contact Debbie Potter or Norman Taylor if you can help.

Great News. In 2016 we have had five new volunteers wishing to tidy up beds in their own time. See the 2017 donation letter for more opportunities here.
