WELCOME TO THE GARDENING GROUP

Our meetings are informal, informative, friendly and fun.
Content varies from illustrated presentations by recognised experts in the field of horticulture, and beyond, as well as lively discussions within the group.
We stage an annual plant fair. Members are encouraged to participate in activities including Christmas wreath making. The group also disseminates information on gardens of outstanding interest.

Note: Guests: (i.e. those who are not Beccles U3A members) are very welcome to come along, however we ask you to join Beccles U3A after attending two meetings.
Please note that we kindly request that all attendees, Beccles U3A members and guests, pay the entrance fee to enable us to maintain the high quality of speakers, hall hire and refreshments.
