About the Gardening Club

Our club was formed in 2004 and has a membership of fifty. Meetings are normally held in Millhouse Village Hall on the second Wednesday in the month, from September through to May, starting time 7.30pm.

Members have had the opportunity to learn how to make willow sculptures, stone troughs and Christmas door wreaths, as well as propagating grasses.The majority of the meetings are open to all, with an admission fee of £2.50 for non-members.

We also have outings and workshops during the summer months. Our programmes have included a wide range of topics relating to all aspects of gardening.We have a wealth of expertise and knowledge in our membership, four of whom have already given talks on various subjects.
