West Parley Gardening Club is to re-open in the New Year.
The club will open its doors at West Parley Memorial Hall at 7.30pm on 25 January.
The committee has prepared a varied programme of speakers for the year, covering a wide range of topics including the NGS Charity, A Garden for Butterflies, The History of Dorset and Kingston Lacy.
In addition to this, visits are planned to an RHS Garden, a local garden that opens for the NGS, and members’ gardens. The club holds an annual show for flowers, vegetables, fruit and cakes. This has proved very popular and all classes are judged by the members.
During a club meeting there are refreshments and home-made cakes on offer plus a raffle, plant stall and a monthly flower/vegetable competition. It is this range of activities that has made this club so popular.
Maybe your garden has always been very important to you or maybe your interest has grown during periods of lockdown. Either way, if you would like to find out more, please contact the chairman, Rod Darch on 01202 896711, email email@example.com or the membership secretary, Jane Glover on 01202 874975.
Rod said: “All will be welcome – we look forward to the return of our existing members and greeting some new ones.”
The speaker on 25 January will be Roger Frampton who will present ‘Orchids’. Visitors welcome £3.
