Grown with care by our garden volunteers

Grow with us

At The Argory, we want to bring our Walled Garden back to life and you can be part of our team. We are now seeking volunteers who want to learn new gardening skills and meet new people. Nurturing this site will help us to grow together and create new and unique events at The Argory. Please email Harry Patterson if you are interested.

Any unwanted books please donate to The Argory

The second-hand bookshop is successfully run by a team of local volunteers who put a lot of effort and dedication into their work. We are now in search for any unwanted books, CDs or DVDs for our spring and autumn Book Fair. These can be dropped off at The Argory, Monday - Friday, 9-5pm. If you're  interested in volunteering please get in touch with Harry Patterson.
