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.
All meetings are in the WI Hall, North Street, Bridport and start at 7.30 pm.
Tea and coffee is served, and non members are welcome, on payment of a small entry fee.
Contact details for officers of the Bridport & District Gardening Club are available on the Membership Card.

She now lives in West Dorset. She will look at the way flower painting developed in demand by the growing Dutch merchant class and beyond to other countries, as it was highly prized by collectors. The talk also looks at the impact on the representation of flowers in painting from the new natural sciences and what becomes the discipline of botany.
