All Clubs and Groups


Everyone who loves gardening is warmly welcomed to the Gardening Club. We are a mix of beginner and experienced gardeners with information and enthusiasm to share. We have a programme of 13 lectures this year for you to enjoy. 

We look forward to plant sales, plant raffles, browsing through our library of gardening books and coffee breaks for face-to-face chats.
