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 £5.00 and members pay £3.00 for each meeting.
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 held our first face to face meeting on 15th September 2021. There was a good turn out and it was wonderful to see so many old friends after such a long time. Zoom talks have kept the club alive and we have had some very interesting speakers, but it is not the same as a gathering in The Old School Hall. The first half an hour was a belated AGM. Sadly we have lost Peter and Linda Boulby from the committee because they are moving our of the area in the next few weeks. Peter did a sterling job as chairman and he and Gail, our secretary, enabled the club to keep going throughout.
Speakers are becoming more expensive and the fee to hire the hall has increased a little. With this in mind the AGM voted to increase the membership to £5 and payment for meetings to £3.
Guests are very welcome
Guests are asked to pay £3 for their first visit to a meeting, but following that they are expected to join.
We have decided to wait until the spring before deciding on trips to gardens.
By then we shall have a better idea of what members would like us to organise.
There will be no meeting in December. We look forward to meeting an old friend of the club, Doug Stewart on 19th January 2022. He has been able to visit the new RHS Bridgewater Gardens and it will be interesting to have his perspective on the developments there.

Grand Garden Day – Sunday, 23rd May 2021
The Plant Fair at The Ropewalk, Barton upon Humber on Sunday 23rd May 2021 was a great success.
The specialist nurseries who usually attend were back in force. The public/customers seemed to be desperate to buy plants. Of course there was no charge for entry because the long avenue alongside the Ropewalk is a public right of way.
