Do you enjoy gardening, have a new garden, would like to know more about plants? Then why not join the East Mendip Gardening Club? We are a friendly, local gardening club and have members and visitors from all over the East Mendips. Our meetings are held in the Ashwick and Oakhill Village Hall, at the top of Zion Hill in Oakhill, and are usually on the 4th Tuesday of each month, with talks starting at 7.30pm. There are usually ten talks a year (often illustrated and/or practical), plus two visits to places of interest and other events.
Come and join us! New members are always welcome, from beginners to experienced. The annual subscription is £10 individual or £15 joint (partners or 1 adult & 1 child). For visitors or a taster a session is £3 to include a cuppa and a biscuit.
