Weed & Tidy & Gardening Group 

Gardening is excellent all round exercise for the whole body and you get the great end result of seeing more flowers and trees in Ongar.  

We are a small enthusiastic group who meet regularly, mostly on Saturday mornings, to plant up new barrels, deadhead, weed, litter pick and generally keep Ongar clean, green and beautiful.

We work together to get jobs done quickly and there is always time for a coffee afterwards.
