CLOWS TOP & DISTRICT GARDENING CLUB: March 20 is the official start of spring. On this date the hours of light equal the hours of dark and from here on the evenings extend and we gardeners can start to enjoy our gardens in full.

At the January meeting Jo Roche, gave an interesting talk and power point presentation on ‘Abberley Hall & Clock Tower’. This was an interesting talk on a very visual landmark in the area. The clock tower can be seen from miles around and its history was fascinating. The evening was a great success with everyone enjoying the talk.

If you’re not a member then come along and join us at one of our monthly meetings. It’s a great opportunity for you to share your thoughts, ideas and advice with other members. We have a great programme of speakers as well as Evening visits to local gardens. The next meeting will be on March 23, members ‘Spring Show’ and ‘Gardner’s Questions’ hosted by Derek Walker.

Clows Top and District Gardening Club meet the fourth Wednesday in the calendar month

at Clows Top Victory Hall; Doors open 7.30pm, for the speaker at 8pm.
