FOBS Events 2016

Please note: Work on the new Education Centre is due to start on 18 July

Due to the demolition of the old classroom and construction of the new Education Centre access will be restricted. Plant sales will be held in the large greenhouse as usual, but a different access route, a short distance uphill on the main path, will be signposted.
