The Gardening group has been in existence for 3 years and welcomes all gardeners regardless of garden size.
If you are interested in Flowers or Vegetables or both and garden a few pots on the window sill, or a small patio garden or a large one. Come along you will be assured of a warm welcome, and some friendly advice and support.
The group meets on the first Monday of the month at 10:00 am at The Church on the Way, Churchill Road, Thetford IP24 2JW.
The Group has a second meeting on the 3rd Monday of the month at which time visits to Garden Centres, Gardens etc are undertaken. Transport can usually be provided for those who don't drive.
The 1st monthly meeting consists of a Talk, Demonstration, Video or a Quiz on some aspect of gardening, followed by a social break and then a question and answer session, where members try and answer the question and pass on their knowledge to help others.
There is also a monthly competition for an Annual Cup. Points being awarded for each entry as well as the winner and runner up. For details of the Monthly Competitions see the competition page.
