The Westerly Ware Association spends over £1000 per year on regular gardening and maintenance, using funds raised from members’ subscriptions and donations, and from our annual summer party and raffle. In addition to this we have invested significant money on specific projects, for instance spending close to £4000 in 2016 to create new herbaceous borders and spruce up our ornamental trees.
