Gardening Club

We meet on a monthly basis in the restaurant at Poplar Nurseries and have a guest speaker at each meeting.  We also have 4 or 5 one day trips as well as a 5 day holiday each year for visiting various gardens.  These are always well supported.

Club members help out Poplar Nurseries with charity events such as the summer social, the Christmas charity evening as well as the Father Christmas weekends in the children’s grotto.
