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 October 2017

Our huge thanks goes to Richard Wood for his excellent talk on Bulbs at our September meeting. All of our members enjoyed his variety of bulbs and plants for sale.

In October, we are welcoming a famous name in the gardening world, Anne Swithinbank. Anne has provided many of us with great enjoyment over the years with her appearances on Gardeners' World and Gardeners' Question Time and it will be wonderful to meet her in person and hear her speak.

We will also be confirming numbers for our highly popular Christmas Party at the Linford so please let us know if you would like to be there.
