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 have planned two garden visits for the period in the summer when we have no meetings
Wednesday, 19th July 2017
The evening visit to Ann and Bob Armstrong at Woodlands Garden and Nursery in Peppin Lane, Fotherby north of Louth, LN11 0UW was not well attended, possibly because of the.distance from Winterton. Feedback from the group was very positive and everyone commented on the wonderful setting and the huge selection of plants. Gail & John Summerfield were not able to go on 19th July because they were entertaining a gardening club in their nursery. However, they managed to get there a week later when the garden is open to the public on a Wednesday afternoon. The garden is a haven for birds. Anyone who couldn’t make it should give it a go.
Saturday, 29th July 2017 – Harlow Carr, Harrogate
The visit to the gardens at Harlow Carr was a great success. At the last moment we were able to add three people to the group. The party was divided into two for the tours with volunteer guides who had a long association with the gardens. Several of the group had been to Harlow Carr several times, but never had an opportunity before to learn so much about its history and the way the site is managed and developed.

WINTERTON SHOW – 1st July 2017
The ‘Gardeners’ Tombola’ at the show was profitable and will cover the cost of one of our speakers in the coming year. Thank you to everyone who donated items for the stall. The tables were pretty well clear by the end of the day. Also the committee would like to thank everyone who volunteered to run the stall.
