SKELTON VILLAGE HALL (YORK)

 

SKELTON GARDEN CLUB

 

We are a friendly group pleased to welcome new members.

We meet the 3rd Thursday of each month

 from September to May except December,

with a break for the summer.

 

Meetings are at 7.30pm for about 2 hours

and refreshments are available.

We also usually have a raffle to raise funds for the club.

 

Twice a year we look forward to visiting

different gardens of interest,

we also enjoy a lovely day out taking home new plants

and

 ideas for our gardens.

Most places have a cafe or restaurant to enjoy lunch out,

alternatively some people prefer to take picnic lunch.

Previous visits have been to places such as

Geoff Hamilton's garden at Barnsdale,

Alnwick Castle and Brodsworth Hall Gardens.

 

As we do not have a meeting in December

due to most people being busy over the festive season

we do like to get together

and

have a party in the New Year.
