We meet on the second Tuesday of every month in the CWG Village Hall, Buds Road WS15 4NB for a 7.30pm start, with a wide programme of speakers throughout the year covering a range of gardening and horticultural related topics.
We welcome everybody with an interest in gardening, whether complete beginner or veteran – you don’t have to be an expert! Some members just come along for an evening out.
At our monthly meeting we hold a competition and the member gaining the most points over the year is awarded the Trudi Brearley trophy at our AGM. There is a raffle and members also donate spare plants, seeds & cuttings. After the speaker & raffle, we have light refreshments and members can wander around & chat.
We also organise coach trips to gardens suggested by members, usually three a year, one each in spring, summer & autumn, and hold fundraising events occasionally.
Our membership fee for the year is £10.00 which covers your entry into the monthly meeting (with tea/coffee & biscuits provided) plus free cheese & wine at the AGM, subsidised food & entertainment for our Christmas Social evening and the subsidised coach trips. Visitors are welcome at any of our meetings, entry £2 to include refreshments.
We hold an annual open show in the village hall when everyone including children is encouraged to enter flowers, fruit, vegetables, preserves & home baking. Our Tom Ethelstone Trophy is awarded for the highest number of points overall and the Lewis Cup for the most points in the vegetable classes.
