Child Okeford Gardeners’ Club

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.

Contact Ann Pearce by email at for more information.


                                                   December Report

   Christmas Social Evening.

December brought the Annual Social Evening  at which there was a mixture of quizzes, readings and mind teasers with the food supplied by the members and drinks by the Club.

The evening started off with a beetle drive which sharpened up the competition between the tables. During consumption of a wide variety of delicious finger food, we racked our brains trying to solve Christmas song anagrams, Gardening, Christmas Carol and Christmas Food and Drink quizzes and a selection of Food and Drink Dingbats.

Vanessa gave a reading a selection of “quotes” from Parish Magazines, many of which had amusing double entendres. Our sincere thanks go to Vanessa for organizing a most enjoyable evening with much laughter and friendly competition.
