Wolston Garden Club

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, (CV8 3HJ) usually commencing at 7.30pm on the third Thursday of the month. The meetings comprise of the talk/demonstration, followed by the raffle draw and tea or coffee.

The membership fee for 2023 is £17. Guests are welcome at £4 each. 

All welcome - just turn up !!
