Winterton & District Gardeners' Club
Winterton & District Gardening Club held its first meeting in September 1996.
The club meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7.30 p.m. from September to June.
Annual membership is £3.00 and members pay £1.50 for each meeting.
Visitors are asked to pay £2.50 for an occasional visit.
We meet at The Old School Hall, 50 West Street, Winterton, Scunthorpe, DN15 9QF.
Access to the main hall is through the blue door at the rear of the building. There is a footpath from West Street at the right hand side. The drive to the infants school can be used to reach the car park behind The Old School Hall.
We had to cancel all meetings from March 2020. After a trial a zoom talk in February 2021 the committee has
decided to approach speakers who are happy to use this medium to do presentations by zoom until we can get
back to face to face meetings.
Norwell Nurseries Visit – Sunday, 23rd May 2021
Denise Larkin has booked a visit to Andrew Ward’s nursery and gardens on Sunday, 23rd May at 3.30 p.m. Since our last visit he has built a wonderful tea room halfway up the garden. We can confirm the cakes are very good. The cost is £7 which includes a tour of the gardens with Andrew and tea/coffee and cake.
We have had to cancel this visit because it coincided with the plant fair at The Ropewalk, Barton.
Tythe Farm Gardens – Saturday, 3rd July
Denise has organised a morning visit [10.30 – 11.00] to Tythe Farm Gardens, Wansford near Driffield. The cost for the visit is £5.
There has been a change of day because there may have been traffic problems near the Driffield Show Ground.
Again we are unable to book a coach and members and friends should make their own arrangements to get to the gardens.
Please advise Denise  or Gail  if you wish to be included no later than 17th June.
