The Gardener’s Club had an excellent turn-out of 27 members and visitors for their first speaker meeting after the summer holidays, on Monday 15th September, at their new meeting time of 7.30pm. The speaker was Andrew Ward, talking about “Fabulous Foliage - A foil for flowers”. Andrew, from Norwell Nurseries, who has been a speaker at the club before, illustrated his talk with many slides to demonstrate how foliage accentuated the beauty of many flowers during a garden year.

Future speaker meetings at the club include: Monday, October 20th, Mike Read, talking about “Cottage Gardens”, and on Monday November 17th, Doug Steward, Radio Humberside’s Gardening Guru, talking about “ Gardening for the Winter Solstice”.

If you are interested in gardening, why not come and check our meetings out? Many of us are novices but we learn a lot from each other as well as our speakers. We are a very friendly and informal club and we try to make everyone feel welcome. At the end of the meeting we have a welcome cup of tea or coffee and biscuits and this gives us the opportunity to chat to each other and share ideas. All meetings are held at 7.30pm in Beckingham Recreation Room. For further information please contact: Pat Hooton Tel. 01427 890357 or Rex Madin 01427 848483.
