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.
The Club was formed in 1978, and we have approx 80 members from Weardale, Teesdale, the Wear Valley and Derwentside areas.
Speakers & Demonstrators
Our speakers and demonstrators are both area and national figures. We also support local events and charities. Our programme of events is available here.
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.
A Committee is elected each year to plan and manage meetings, organise transport for trips, fund raising etc.
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.
“If you are not already a member, you are most welcome to come along to any meeting as a visitor.”
Meetings (February to December) are generally at 7pm, on the third Tuesday of the month. We do have additional events during the day, and sometimes on a weekend if we are visiting a show etc.
We meet in St Anne’s Centre, West End, Wolsingham, DL13 3AT. 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
