Ettington Gardening Club

The Ettington Gardening Club programme of evening meetings runs from September through to June. The meetings start at 7.30pm on the first Thursday of the month and are held in the small hall of the community centre. In December we have a Christmas buffet and there is no meeting in January. There is usually a Spring or Summer outing and a summer BBQ in a member’s garden. The talks, often illustrated, last for about one hour and are followed by refreshments, a raffle and a chance to ask questions and chat. Depending on the time of year there may be members’ plants for sale and some speakers will bring plants to sell.
