Let’s get together
It is no surprise that our meetings are so well attended. Not only are they interesting and informative, they are also enjoyable social gatherings.
As always, our Programme Committee has worked hard to invite speakers with very different skills, knowledge and experience and you will see below that their subject matter is not always gardening related.
So, if you are thinking of joining us, come along to a meeting and you will be made very welcome – for non-members there is a £2.00 entry fee.
All meetings are in the WI Hall, North Street, Bridport and start at 7.30 pm.
Contact details for officers of the Bridport & District Gardening Club are available in the Newsletter.
