South Marston Gardening Club

This small, friendly Club meets every 1st Monday in the month in South Marston Village Hall from 7:30pm to 9:30pm unless otherwise stated.

Our numbers are diminishing and to keep this Club going the Gardening Club urgently needs more members. This Club has been running for over 50 years and one of the founder members of the Club was Bill Smith (Rita’s husband who still lives in the Village). It’s suitable for all ages and all experiences with regards to plants, flowers and vegetables. You don’t have to be green-fingered, you just need an interest in things that grow so come and join like-minded people.

Annual Membership is just £12, or as a Visitor for events that particularly interest you just £3 on the door. There’s always a cup of tea or coffee with homemade cake on offer.

A warm welcome awaits you!
