Formed in 1982, Woodborough Horticultural Society is a thriving and happy village organisation always ready to welcome new members. Are you interested in gardening, growing flowers and vegetables, learning new ideas, going on trips and exchanging tips with other like-minded souls?
Annual individual membership is currently just £5.00. There is a also a one off joining fee of just £1.00, but no additional charges for members at talks.
Why not some along and join us at one of our meetings? Details of dates are below. Talks are usually on the 2nd Monday of the month and are held in the Village Hall, starting 7:30pm. We also have four shows a year, social events, and trips and visits.
If you are not a member yet, mention dumbles.co.uk for one free entry to a talk in 2015 (guests usually pay £2). Why not see if you like what we offer, then join the society?
