Brailes Gardening Club


We are a friendly group who live in or around Brailes. We are all interested in gardening and gardens but our abilities range from beginners to expert. We normally meet on the third Thursday of each month at Brailes Village Hall starting at 7.30pm. for a planned talk or event along with a catch up, a cuppa and a chat.

From Autumn through to Spring we have a varied programme of speakers and in the Summer we arrange garden visits and other activities. You can see the 2018 programme below.

Members pay an annual subscription of £10 for each calendar year but visitors are always welcome for a contribution of £3. So please do come along to a meeting to find out more and see if you enjoy yourself.
