The Club is now in it's 78th year and was known as the Slimbridge Horticultural Society until the start 2012. It started life as The Slimbridge Home Food Production Club - formed about 1942 as part of the Dig for Victory campaign. From their earliest days, they had an annual produce show. Nowadays, we have two shows each year - one in early April with the emphasis on Spring flowers and a Summer Show in late August with a full range of vegetable, flower, flower arranging, cookery and photography classes. We are particularly keen on encouraging our younger members and both shows have children's gardening and handicraft sections with cash prizes and cups. Meetings are usually with a guest speaker, held on the second Tuesday of the month from September through to May at the Village Hall from 7:30pm. (Opposite the Church) Visitors are most welcome, there is a visitor's charge of £3 which includes light refreshments which are free to all. Full membership is £10 per person or £15 per household, per year. In late May we hold a members' plant sale open to the public at 10:00am. No entry charge but come early to snap up the bargains. We also run a coach trip in June or July. Other benefits of membership include substantial discounts from local garden centres and shops and on Suttons and Marshalls seeds, potatoes, onion sets etc. All information should be correct.
