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.
Last year’s coach trip – Saturday 15th July
We had two interesting but contrasting visits during the day.
In the morning we were made very welcome at Rewela Cottage, Skewsby. There was an excellent display of Hostas and Heuceras sold at reasonable prices. What a pity the coach driver refused to use sat nav to find his way.
In the afternoon we went to the Yorkshire Arboretum. It is a 120 acre garden of trees from around the the world set in a park of lakes. The guide was informative, but some of the group found the walking difficult. The ice creams were excellent.
Evening visit – 18th July 2018
A group of members spent an evening with Joanne & Adrian Davey looking round their garden in Witton. The old end of terrace house belies the long L-shaped garden behind. As well as being packed with plants there are artefacts at every turn. Adrian has been a very busy man with clever hands and lots of ingenuity and imagination. The hospitality was enhanced by Joanne’s wonderful cakes.
