We are a small and friendly club of gardening enthusiasts open to all from complete novices to experienced gardeners. 2022 sees the start of a new chapter for the club with more meetings than ever with the introduction of some in the afternoons, plus visits and events .
The annual membership fee has been reduced to only £7.50 with a charge of £1.00 per meeting.
The club meets in the Methodist Church Hall on North Street, on Wednesdays. For the afternoon session it is the first week and for the evening meetings the third week. Non members are always welcome at a charge of £3.00 per visit.
Due to the rapid spread of Covid our AGM on Wednesday 5/1 has been postponed
For the December meeting Sharon and Nicola from Taylor’s florist shop gave an excellent demonstration of making a festive kissing ball as an alternative to a traditional wreath.
The 2022 programme is now ready
