Child Okeford Gardeners’ Club
Our aim is to have informative, inspirational and friendly meetings. The meetings are usually held in the Village Hall unless otherwise stated and are on the 1st Wednesday in the month at 7.30pm.
Members are asked to bring anything from their garden to these meetings which they might to like share, ie: Flowers, Vegetables, Flowering Shrubs, OR problems which they may have encountered.
Our activities include Lectures and social evenings, in summer and at Christmas, which are a very popular and well supported. The highlight of the new year is undoubtedly the Gardening Club dinner in January where excellent food and convivial company together with great entertainment make for a splendid evening out.
Each Spring we have an informal show where members are asked to judge the exhibits and every August there is the Annual Village show which is open to all.
All evenings include refreshments for a small charge.
The annual subscription is £8.00. Visitors are always welcome paying £3.00 each evening.
