The first event in a 2013 calendar full of talks and outings takes place today with a visit to Dial Park, Chaddesley Corbett.

During the year, future attractions include evening visits to gardens of interest, including a day visit to Hampton Court, the usual quiz with Belbroughton Gardening Club, and a hanging basket demonstration.

The next regular meeting on Friday, February 22 will be held at Clent Parish Hall with a presentation by Paul Cook of Cook’s Garden Centre from Stourport.

Due to the Annual General Meeting having been cancelled owing to heavy snow, the meeting will start at the earlier time of 7.15pm for 7.30pm to include a truncated version of the AGM. There will also be the usual raffle followed by refreshments.
