Walkley Horticultural Show 2016



A couple of months back Walkley Carnegie Library held a very successful gardening themed book sale, plant sale and children’s planting event. It is hoped that this may encourage many of you to enter or attend this great event. It would be great to have a large crowd for the official opening.
