There is a varied programme of talks and visits but the busiest occasions are the annual Spring Flower Show on the first Sunday of April, and the Open Gardens Weekend every two years on the first weekend in July which raises money for charities. The show is recognised by the Daffodil Society and draws entries from right across the North of England, while the open gardens weekend raises over £2,000.
The monthly meetings range from talks from specialist growers to light hearted presentations from top speakers, and the popular Christmas party. Why not contact one of the officials for more information or just come along to one of our meetings where you will get a warm welcome and a cup of tea!
