Welcome to Wolston Garden Club

 

Chair: Val Griffin 024 7654 5469

 

We are not a Horticultural Society  - we are a group of people that enjoy gardens and associated topics. You don't even need to have a garden or like gardening to be a member as the talks are of general interest.

Our meetings are held at Wolston Village Hall, usually commencing at 7.30pm on the third Thursday of the month. Individual membership for the year is £15. Guests are always welcome at any meeting, at a charge of £4 each.

This year our coach trip will be to the Malvern Spring Show on Saturday May 13th. The details are not yet finalised, but the cost should be no more than £30, including entrance fees. These trips are always very popular so if you want to go please let Val know as soon as possible.
