Weardale Flower & Garden Club

Welcome to our website. The Club was formed in 1978, and we have approx 50 members. In 2018 we planted 4,000 daffodils around Wolsingham to celebrate our 40th anniversary.

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

We meet on the third Tuesday of each month, February to December, at 7pm, till approx 9-9.30pm. Most meetings are held in the Town Hall (above the library) in the Market Place at Wolsingham (sat nav DL13 3AB). In the summer months we visit gardens and events. Our Christmas charity meeting in November is held in a larger venue to accommodate at least 200 people.

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.
