Garden Club

The Garden Club organises a monthly evening meeting over the September to May months with a variety of interesting visiting speakers on a range of horticultural topics and the occasional social event. Over the summer months, visits to wonderful gardens and Garden Shows are arranged.

Our evening meetings are normally held in Offchurch Village Hall on the last Monday of the month.  Meetings begin at 7.45 pm, although most members arrive long before this to have a friendly chat. The evening meetings end with Tea or Coffee and biscuits and a raffle.

Annual subscription fee is £7.50. Visitors to individual meetings are warmly welcomed at a cost of £3 per meeting.

The club has an extensive collection of horticultural books and videos for reference purposes and members may borrow any of these and return them at the next meeting.

  1. My name is Pauline Pears, and I give gardening talks on a range of subjects including organic fruit growing, home composting, growing without pesticides. Most of them involve some participation from the audience.
    I have been giving talks for many years, and often get repeat bookings from the same gardening group.
    I am based in Leamington Spa.

    Please contact me if you would like to see my most recent list of talks.

  2. On behalf of the Broughton Castle management team I am enquiring if you have ever considered a group visit to this splendid house & gardens near Banbury. The gardens are spectacular when in bloom midsummer.
    If you would like further details, please let me know.
