Winterton & District Gardeners' Club

About Us

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 have a coach trip organised for Saturday, 14th July

The coach leaves the market place, Winterton at 9.00 a.m

The total cost for the trip is £27  

In the morning we visit Rewela Cottage, Skewsby.

The garden was designed from an empty paddock to be as labour saving as possible. All the plants are labelled with propagation notes.

Tea/coffee and cake will be served.

 

 

In the afternoon we visit the Yorkshire Arboretum

A 120 acre garden of trees from around the world set in a park of lakes and ponds. Internationally renowned collection of trees and a diversity of wild flowers, birds and other wildlife.

We shall be back in  Winterton at 5.30 p.m.  If you would like to go contact Gail on 01724 733940.
