Welcome to the Snitterfield Garden Club website

 

 

We are based in the beautiful South Warwickshire village of Snitterfield ( www.snitterfield.com ) just north east of Stratford on Avon. Snitterfield Garden Club has been in existence for 20 years and is a friendly and sociable group drawing members from surrounding villages and towns further afield.

 

The club offers an excellent programme of events, which in the winter months includes interesting and informative talks on gardens and gardening and in the summer months visits to beautiful gardens. In recent years our speakers have included Fergus Garrett of Great Dixter fame, Sir Roddy Llewellyn, Val Bourne and one of the naked gardeners from Abbey House Gardens Barbara Pollard – this time fully attired.

 

The club is affiliated to the RHS which entitles us to

• Group entry to an RHS garden once a year

• Monthly copy of ‘The Garden’ magazine

and following the RHS initiative we actively welcome the public and encourage non members to our meetings.

 

See 'Programme' above for the 2015/16 programme of meetings and events.

 

All meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month

in Snitterfield Village Hall starting at 8.00pm

Tea/Coffee and cakes available from 7.45pm

 

The annual fee is £10 and can be paid on the night.
