Thaxted Gardening Club
Regular Guest Speakers

The club was started about 4 years ago by a group of interested gardeners who felt there was a need for a club where the absolute beginner and the experienced gardener could meet, exchange information and listen to demonstrators who would cover a wide range of subjects.

We now have about 40 regular attendees at the monthly meetings which are usually held in the day centre at 7.30pm.

The members are of all ages and experience and with gardens that range from a window box to an acre so we hopefully have met our original aims.

Entry £2.00 per meeting. Meetings are held at the Day Centre, Margaret Street Car park on the last Monday of each month except bank holidays (no meetings in December and August).

Raffle, talks and demonstrations, plant exchange stall, refreshments and discussion time.

Easy parking and disabled access to the meeting room.

You will be assured of a warm welcome and if you want further information please contact: Alison Howells on 01371 830318 or Jean Lankester on 01371 830629.
