Upcoming Winter Program 2019/20

The winter speaker meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at the Rowing Club in Abbey Park.
Time: from 2.00-4.00 pm (October to March).
The entrance fee is £5 which includes free parking at the Rowing Club and free coffee/tea and biscuits.
This price should just cover the overall cost of the winter speaker program given the current membership level.

All the talks for October 2019 through March 2020 are shown in the Dates for your Diary table at the bottom of this page.
We believe we have a varied, quality list of speakers lined up for the coming winter so please come and enjoy an afternoon out in the depths of the winter!

The first talk is on Wednesday 9 October, entitled Wildlife on and around Bredon Hill.
Our new winter season will kick off with a talk illustrated by the use of photos and videos captured by camera traps placed on and around Bredon hill. A unique and interesting look at the wildlife in our local countryside given by Jamie Smith.

The 2019 summer program has now been completed. Jill and Betty are currently planning next year's summer program.
In 2019 our group visited Cerney House Gardens, Brockworth Court, Hill Close Gardens (Warwick), The Tynings (Stoulton), Morton Hall and a cottage garden in Defford. Some photos of the visits made in 2019 are shown on this webpage.

For all enquiries please use the pigeon to send an email to the Group Leaders.
