Holford Gardeners Group

In   2003   some   like   minded   people   came   together   to   form   Holford   Gardeners   Group.    Now   the   Group   attracts   its   members and visitors not only from Holford but also from the surrounding villages. Meetings   are   held   on   the   3rd   Tuesday   evening   of   the   month,   excepting August.   Speakers   come   to   Holford   &   District   village hall   to   talk   on   a   wide   variety   of   horticultural   related   subjects.   The   Plant   Auction   in   May   is   a   good   fun   evening   where bargains   are   readily   snapped   up   with   the   occasional   bidding   war!   July   sees   members   enjoying   Pimms   and   strawberries   in   a member’s garden, and in December the committee puts on a Christmas Social Evening. Since   2004   the   Group   has   organised   Holford   Flower   Show,   which   has   very   much   become   a   favourite   village   event.   It   is   not just for members, but also for the whole family to enter attracting exhibitors and visitors from a wide area. Why not come and join us at Holford Gardeners Group? For further details holfordgardeners@talktalk.net
