Monthly Members’ & Volunteers’ Coffee Mornings 2016

During the year, the Garden hosts a series of exclusive Members’ & Volunteers’ only coffee mornings once a month, days do and can vary depending on the event.   Events include talks by guest speakers, or members of staff and volunteers, on a variety of subjects but all linked in some way to the environment, horticulture and history thereby supporting the ethos and mission of the Garden. There are also trips to visit other gardens and gardening shows.

Coffee mornings provide an opportunity for members to meet other members, staff and volunteers. It is a very sociable occasion but also one where like-minds and horticultural/environmental interests come together. Do come and join us.

All coffee mornings are ‘bookable’ events. There is a small charge, £2 per head, which includes coffee/tea & biscuits served from 11.00 am onwards.   To reserve a place, members are requested to book in advance by telephoning Jane on: 01558 667118 or email: jane.down@gardenofwales.org.uk

Boreau Coffi Misol i Aelodau a

Gwirfoddolwyr 2016

Yn ystod y flwyddyn, mae’r Ardd yn cynnal cyfres o foreau coffi i Aelodau a Gwirfoddolwyr; fe’u cynhelir yn arferol ar y trydydd Dydd Gwener yn y mis. Mae’r digwyddiadau hyn yn rhoi cyfle i aelodau glywed am brosiectau newydd yn yr Ardd neu dderbyn gwybodaeth am brosiectau cyfredol. Gellir hefyd gwahodd siaradwr gwadd i rai ohonynt, rhywun sy’n arbenigo mewn pwnc sy’n cydweddu ag ethos, cenhadaeth ac amcanion yr Ardd. Ry’n ni hefyd yn trefnu gwibdeithiau bws i erddi partneriaethol a sioeau garddio.

Mae’r boreau coffi hefyd yn rhoi cyfle i aelodau gyfarfod ag aelodau eraill, staff a gwirfoddolwyr. Mae’n achlysur cymdeithasol iawn, ond mae e hefyd yn rhywle lle y gall rhai sydd yn rhannu’r un diddordebau garddwriaethol ac amgylcheddol ddod ynghyd.

Mae pob bore coffi yn ddigwyddiad lle y mae’n rhaid llogi’ch lle.   Codir tâl bychan o £2 y pen, sy’n cynnwys te/coffi a bisgedi, a weinir o 11yb ymlaen. Er mwyn llogi’ch lle, gofynnir i aelodau ffonio Jane ar 01558 667118, neu e-bostio jane.down@gardenofwales.org.uk ymlaen llaw.
