Whitecross and District Gardening Club
Sunday 30th August 2009
Whitecross & District Gardening Club meets on the third Thursday of each month at Whitecross Village Hall. It is a lively friendly club with 84 members enjoying a wide and varied programme throughout the year.
Speakers often bring a range of specialist plants which are for sale after their talk, whilst we enjoy a chat and a cup of tea or coffee.
In December the Village Hall is transformed for the Christmas Party, a special event, where we enjoy a delicious meal together with our partners in a warm friendly atmosphere.
February & March sees us swapping seeds, encouraging each other to grow new plants and divide old favourites for our annual sale held in May. This year the sale was held at Hall Farm, courtesy of Gavin and Margaret Shakerley, and a great time was had by all!
During the summer we arrange garden visits and outings. We think you will agree this is pretty good value for £7 a year membership.
As a group who share a love of and an interest in plants and gardening we are keen to support young people and we have agreed a Bursary Award to help anyone who is undertaking or about to embark on training in horticulture. If this applies to you, or you know of anyone who fits the bill, then we would love to hear from you.
Our 2009/2010 programme is available from the end of August. (See also Website Calendar)
