Outings

Throughout the year the club arranges minibus outings to shows, RHS gardens, NT properties and smaller private gardens. The minibus seats 17 and there is always a family outing atmosphere being filled with much chatter and usually a bag of sweets!
During 2019 we hope to arrange visits to Batsford Arboretum, Stockton Bury, Rooksnest and Wisley amongst others.

Members have priority on outings but sometimes there are seats available to non-members; send us you details if you would like us to contact you on such occasions.
