Plant sales

On the first Sunday of the month Sunnyside hosts a friendly plant sale

1pm till 4pm

To fund-raise for Sunnyside our volunteers run a plant sale on the first Sunday of the month from 1pm till 4pm (if the weather is very bad then we may pack up early).

This is a lovely social event, and is a nice way to get to know other people who live in the local area. There is a tea and cake stall, a bike maintenance workshop and other seasonal activities.
