Our Activities

We are a very active society. At our monthly meetings we have a speaker followed by free tea/coffee and posh biscuits. Plants and garden related goods are for sale at reasonable prices. We hold a fantastic monthly raffle.

Throughout the year we hold "garden gossips" when we gather to appreciate and enjoy members gardens with tea and cake.

An annual holiday is organised during which we visit gardens further afield.

Various day trips to private and well known gardens are planned through the year with more tea and cake!.
