Information on Empingham Garden Club

The Empingham Garden Club is now well established and has an excellent programme of meetings and activities each year. There is a very friendly club atmosphere and new members are always welcome. Typically some 30 to forty members attend the monthly meetings.

We are interested in all aspects of gardening and meet regularly on the fourth Monday of the month at 7.30pm at the Cricket Club. Speakers come and talk to us on various subjects related to gardening about 8 times a year, and we also have outings run in conjunction with other local Clubs. An annual Show is staged in the Audit Hall in late August.

A newsletter is issued each month for collection at the meetings, and is also delivered to those members who could not attend, to keep them up to date with the activities. There is a plant sale and coffee and cake morning in May, where members donate their spare plants to raise funds for the Club. At the December meeting there is a party during the evening.

The subscription is £6 per annum and we have a raffle at the meetings. Anyone wishing further details, please contact the Chairman, Liz Willars, 01780 460358, 51 Main Street, email lizwillars@sky.com .
