The group meets at Wick Village Hall (map) , and Langley Burrell Village Hall (map)

A number of speakers bring plants for us to buy. Also at each meeting there is a members’ plant stall – please grow a few extra plants for this. It is always good fun to have a rootle to find that special plant before or after the talk! Just bring them along whenyou come to the meeting.

At each meeting we provide refreshments—if you feel you could help to make the occasional cake, biscuit or tray bake please let us know. The regular bakers would be really grateful!
