Hoylake & District Gardening Society
Established in 1945, the gardening club has a current, enthusiastic membership of over 90, with a full programme of events throughout the year. It's a very friendly club, catering for gardeners of all abilities.
From September to May, the Society meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7.30 pm in the Mini Hall at Hoylake Parade Community Centre, Hoyle Rd, Hoylake.
Meetings comprise a talk by a professional on some aspect of gardening. The programme is very varied from head gardeners and Chelsea Gold medallists to talks on wildlife, herbal medicines, foreign lands, and beekeeping to name a few. Talks are followed by tea, coffee and biscuits with a chance to chat to the speaker and of course, to other members. Guests are always welcome at £2.00 per visit.
During the summer months, there are coach trips to prestigious gardens in the North of England, plus visits to private gardens in the area.
Other club benefits include a chance to get advice from members on any gardening problem, access to gardening magazines and leaflets on forthcoming events in the North West, plus 10% discount off purchases from The Garden House garden centre, Chester High Road, Heswall.
Subscription is £12.00 per year, with meetings free to members and £2.00 to guests.
Programme: Spring 2018 - Spring 2019
All meetings take place at Hoylake Parade Community Centre and start at 7.30pm
