About Us


We are a small but friendly and thriving village association. We meet once a month, except January. We hold monthly competitions for single flowers, potted plants and hand-made items, culminating in trophies for the winners at the Annual General Meeting in December.


Annual subscription: £10.00 per person, with an attendance fee of £3.00 per meeting, which covers the cost of refreshments and a raffle ticket.
New members are warmly welcomed.


You will join a very friendly group of like-minded people. Each month we have an outside speaker and cover a wide range of gardening topics. At each meeting a member gives us a list of ‘jobs for the month’.
At least one outing is arranged each year.
