There are two ways to join our meetings: 
1) The simplest way is to go to our YouTube page when the talk is about to start (either 7.30pm or 2.30pm) as we simultaneously stream the meeting Live on YouTube.  To join,  just click this link  www.youtube.com/c/TenderShootsGardenClubNetwork    or search YouTube for the 'Tender Shoots Garden Club Network' and then click on our yellow logo.  The advantage of YouTube Live is you can start the talk from the beginning if you arrive late, you can pause, rewind & skip any bits & still ask questions to the speaker via YouTube chat box.
2) If you wish to join the zoom meeting directly, please contact Gillie in advance (thehillcottagebb@hotmail.com) and she will give you the Meeting ID and Passcode to enter on the start screen which you can access via this link:  It's the same login for all meetings.
(Please do NOT post zoom details on the internet or Facebook.)
