Those of us fortunate to live in the beautiful villages of Filkins and Broughton Poggs appreciate our many lovely and well-cared for gardens. For people with time to spare, joining the Gardening Club provides opportunities to go out together to visit other gardens and to meet to enjoy various gardening-related activities. Members of the Club give their time and use the Club’s funds to plant and maintain several of the village gardens – those outside the Village Hall, the Village Centre and opposite the Bowling Club lawn.
Members of the Club have a widely varied understanding of gardens, plants and gardening techniques and those with no knowledge are as welcome as those who have accrued their knowledge over many years. Filkins and Broughton Poggs Gardening Club is an informal Club with no formal Committee structure – its success depends upon the members planning, organising and taking part in the activities. Membership is open to anyone living in Filkins or Broughton Poggs over the age of 18 years – it was agreed that it would be a village-only Club when the idea for it arose out of a Parish Plan and the age restriction is because of safe-guarding issues. The Club occasionally holds Open Meetings when adults are welcome to bring along children as the Club wishes, whenever possible, to encourage childrens’ interest in gardening. Members usually meet on Friday afternoons.
