Welcome to the website of the Blofield and District Gardening Club. If you live in Blofield in Norfolk or one of the surrounding areas and have an interest in gardening then this is the club for you. We meet once a month on the second Wednesday of the month for a presentation on some aspect of gardening provided by good quality speakers. These meetings are also an opportunity to socialise with other members with similar interests, to gain advice on gardening matters and to compete with other members in our monthly competition. We have also arranged discounts at local gardening suppliers. Why not join us at one of our meetings to try us out.
A date for your diary! The popular Bird in Hand Open Gardens return again this year on Saturday and Sunday 13th/14th August, 11am until 4pm each day. There will be a wonderful selection of plants for sale, cakes & refreshments, ales, wine and Pimms. Entrance fee will be £3. Proceeds go to Heathlands and Hemblington Church. Bird in Hand is at 80, Mill Road, Blofield Heath, NR13 4QS.
We hope everyone will look in at the Margaret Harker Hall from 2 pm on Saturday, 16th July, to see the flowers, fruit, vegetables and home produce exhibited by Gardening Club members – our first show for two years and a great opportunity to celebrate our 50 years. Entry is free, refreshments will be available plus plant and cake stalls and a raffle.
All you ever wanted to know about the Sandringham Flower Show will be revealed by its long-term organiser David Reeve at the 8th June meeting (7:30 pm) at The Margaret Harker Hall. It is very appropriate timing following the Platinum Celebration of H.M. the Queen’s reign. The members’ competition is also in keeping – “A patriotic arrangement in red, white and blue”!
