Newtown Linford Gardening Club

The Gardening Club was formed in May 2002 in response to a demand clearly shown in the Village Appraisal. Now we have over 100 members.

We have a full, interesting and varied programme. We meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 7.30 pm in the large hall at the Village Hall in Newtown Linford.

New members and visitors are welcome, for full details contact Secretary Anne Couling on 01530 242452 or email 32couling@gmail.com.

Thank you for visiting our webpage. We had added new information. Please scroll down to the bottom of this page to go to Past Activities, Information and our Photo Gallery.

Newsletter June 2017

In May, we had a wonderful talk from Brian and Gill Fearn on Echinopsis hybrids and in June we have a visit from one of Leicester's great characters, Ady Dayman. Ady is the regular gardening expert on Radio Leicester and his talks are always entertaining. He brings lots of different plants, tells us how to get the best out of them and hen invites us to buy them to grow in our own gardens.

In July we have our Garden Party which we all look forward to immensely and in August we have a trip to Easton Walled Gardens in Grantham.
