Gardening Club

Help BFCCT maintain our memorial space dedicated to Blackpool FC players who sadly lost their lives during the First World War. If you’re not that green-fingered, then just come along for a brew and a chat.

There are other memorials in need of maintenance down at the Arboretum which requires a small army of volunteers, so once Veterans Gardening Club has finished there’s plenty of opportunities to get more involved. A flask, wellies, gloves, and warm kit would be useful if you decide to come and help.
