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.

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.

The committee is looking for an interesting garden within a few miles of Winterton for an evening visit in July. As soon as we have something arranged, we shall post the details.
