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.

Coach Trip planned for Saturday, 1st June 2019

Following our last meeting on 17th April and the enjoyable and informative presentation by Colin Ward talking about the unusual plants he brought with him, we have booked a coach trip to Swines Meadow Farm Nursery near Peterborough on Saturday,1st June 2019.

The coach will be leaving The Old School Hall, West Street at 0900 hours. The total cost will be £20. This includes travel, a tour round the nursery and afternoon tea.
