The Pencombe and Little Cowarne Garden Club began in October 2021 and meets usually on the second Monday of the month. This is occasionally different if dates clash with other events.
Meetings start at 7:30pm and begin with coffee and a chat which gives us an opportunity to catch up with events and activities of the previous month and also to choose magazines and seeds we’d like to swap. There is usually a presentation form a member about their garden, and a presentation or video and discussion around the topic of interest for the evening. And we try to have a raffle or competition each month. Meetings close around 9:00pm
Meetings cost £2.00 per person if paid on the night, or £20 per year per person if paid by BACS.
