Woodford Halse Garden Club started back in 1994 and continues to meet regularly at the Memorial Hall, 7.30-9pm on the first Monday of the month from March-December.
It doesn’t matter if your garden is large, overgrown, pristine, developing, small or non-existent! You do not need to have green fingers! Anyone who enjoys finding out about plants and nature and the chance to hear about and visit interesting gardens should enjoy being part of the club.
We are a friendly diverse group and we are always keen to welcome new people either as members or visitors for an evening. Our members enjoy the opportunity to hear from a range of speakers on plant and garden-related topics as well as subsidised visits to local gardens of interest and trips to gardens further afield, such as our coach trip to RHS Wisley in 2019. We hold an annual Christmas social event where members can reflect on the gardening year over a festive supper. We also arrange charity events in the village, such as supporting the work of Thrive (a charity which uses gardening to help change lives) with our “Cream Teas in the garden”.
Given the ongoing uncertainty as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, we have decided to cancel our planned summer visits and the show in September. At the moment we have kept the October and November meetings in the diary, as well as the Christmas party, but may need to review this as we move through the year. So, when we are open we would love to welcome any visitors who might have recently been introduced to the delights of gardening and “growing your own” during this time of household isolation. The Garden Club committee has decided that, as we have only provided a partial programme this year, we will carry forward memberships to 2021, so that members who have already paid subs for this year will not have to pay again next year. For further information contact email@example.com
Please see below for details of the remainder of our 2020 programme:
October 5th – Stephen Hall – “From Bronze to Gold”, 7.30pm The Memorial Hall
November 2nd – Russell Attwood – “The Pumpkin Show”,7.30pm The Memorial Hall
December 7th – Christmas Social and Supper, 7pm The Memorial Hall
Membership costs just £10 for the year and our members are entitled to a 10% discount on purchases at Farnborough Garden Centre. Evening visitors to the club are very welcome (£3 for the evening) and refreshments are available in the Memorial Hall.
In addition, we organise a Flower and Produce Show where locals are able to enter vegetables, flowers and fruit as well as homemade produce in this friendly competition that takes place in September (you do not need to be a club member to take part in this). A list of show categories is available in the village, on our Facebook page and will also be here on the Village Signpost website in July/August.
