Annual General Meeting 2016

Our AGM will be held at 7.30 pm on Thursday 31st March in St Peters Hall in Broad Street, Ely.

All friends and visitors are welcome and we will take this opportunity to introduce your new committee and thank the retiring members.

We shall also have a talk by Spencer Clark on “What’s Happening in the Garden”.

Please can you help?

The Friends of Jubilee Gardens Working Parties are about to start …. and we need plenty of volunteers, as there are two new beds to be planted with perennials and bedding plants.

Do come along and help, for as little or as much time as you can spare, it’s really good fun and rewarding. (If bending is a problem, there’s always some pruning to be done.)

We meet at 9.30 am in Jubilee Gardens on the 2nd Wednesday or each month and do as much as we can during the morning, so the dates for 2016 are:

13th April
11th May
8th June
13th July
10th August
14th September
12th October
9th November

Hope to see you soon …

Happy New Year 2016

Thank you to all the Council Gardeners and Friends of Jubilee Gardens Ely Committee Members and volunteers, who make the gardens so beautiful to stroll through.

Here’s to a blooming good year ahead:)


End of Season Working Party

Six members of the Friends of Jubilee Gardens Ely worked together on Wednesday 11th November in the Sensory Garden at this year’s last official Working Party.

The morning was warm and sunny; much weeding and bramble removal took place together with the planting of primroses, forget-me-nots and scented tulip bulbs. Two council members removed a couple of large overgrown Hebe shrubs adjoining the Scented Garden.

All work stopped at 11 am to observe two minutes silence to remember The Fallen.

Working Party Success

Happy Workers

Thank you so much to the 8 cheerful volunteers who came along to our Working Party in Jubilee Gardens on the morning of 14th October!

The sunny, autumnal morning encouraged us to do some heavy pruning and ground clearance in the Scented Garden.  This opened up an area which was planted with Perovskia, Bergenia, ornamental grasses and Sarcocoocca.  Sadly, a heavy shower of rain brought an end to our enthusiasm after an excellent morning’s work.

We’re all looking forward to seeing how it looks next year -:)

Successful First Working Party of the Year :)

Thank you to all the volunteers, who supported our Working Party in Jubilee Gardens last Wednesday, 11th March.

The weather was fine and volunteers helped the council team transplant iris and daffodils from an area at the Broad Street end, to be grassed over soon.

The next working party will be on Wednesday 8th April between 9.30 am and mid-day.  Hope to see you there!!
