Welcome to the Preston Cluster!
This page brings together community action taking place across the city.
Also follow us on Twitter @PrestonDirters
Gardening club. Created to maintain the church grounds, but also to be an informative and interactive social event, so that the members of the community who can garden, do garden, but the members of the community who support the work make us lunch. Hence the name Weed and Feed. We meet every 4th Saturday of the month 10am til 2pm. The church has been awarded the funding to rennovate the gardens. This includes a wildflower meadow, native hedgerow and deep herbacious borders to provide almost all year flowers for the church and significantly enhance the appearance of the gardens and make it an attractive community space where anyone is welcome. Ashton Weed and Feed is open to all people regardless of religion. There is informal training, no experience is necessary and we have some tools. Just bring your enthusiasm and some gardening gloves.View all
