Weardale Flower & Garden Club

Welcome to our website. The Club was formed in 1978, and we have approx 60 members. 

Welcome

Our meetings are a mix of talks on gardening, demonstrations by gardeners and florists, day and evening vists to gardens and shows, workshops for those interested in developing skills and related crafts eg willow weaving, floral nights, and social events.

Speakers & Demonstrations

Our speakers and demonstrators are both area and national figures. We also try to support local events and charities. Our programme of events is available here.

Great Social Events

Our meetings are pretty informal and are great social events. We have members from Weardale, Teesdale and Crook/Willington areas.

RHS Affiliated

We are an affiliated Club of the RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) which gives us group entry to a RHS garden each year, access to free advice from gardening experts, monthly magazine, and group rates for RHS shows.

“If you are not already a member, you are most welcome to come along to any meeting as a visitor.”

About Us

Meetings (February to December) are generally at 7pm, on the third Tuesday of the month. We do have additional events during the day, and sometiimes on a weekend if we are visiting a show etc.

Currently we are meeting in the Methodist Church, Front Street, Wolsingham (Postcode DL13 3DF). However, we hope to move to a larger venue soon. We support various charities, both local and national, and for those who are interested there is the opportunity to be involved in fund raising, festivals shows etc

Our Committee

A Committee is elected each year to plan and manage meetings, organise transport for trips, fund raising etc.

Programme of Events

Our annual programme is available on this site, and copies are available locally, eg from Stanhope Dales Centre, and Libraries. You can also access our monthly newsletter on our website.

Membership

Annual membership fees are payable in February each year, but you can join at any time; a reduced membership fee is payable from mid year, and if you come as a visitor your one off payment is deducted from your subscription should you subsequently join.
