We are a group of enthusiastic gardeners who visit each other's gardens and exchange information over coffee. The only criterion for membership is to have your own garden.

We visit each other’s gardens, usually meeting once a month to view the garden and discuss gardening topics over a cup of tea or coffee.

In a change of programme, we will not have a meeting in February.

Unfortunately we are unable to accept new members at present. Although this group is currently full, new groups are being formed as existing ones fill up, so please contact William Armitage 07890 709462 about the possibility of setting up a new Gardening Tea and Tips group.

We are a friendly group whose visits and social activities are mainly, but not exclusively, concerned with garden visits/gardening/countryside.

The group will be holding a planning meeting at the end of January/beginning of February. The date and venue will be notified to members in due course.

If you would like to find out more please ring Susan Mellor on 01462 456486.

New members are always very welcome - you don’t need a garden to join our group!

Come along for a sociable knitting session and share your tips and patterns.

We will begin again in the Spring.

We plan several visits this spring and summer, possibly notifying members at short notice for a better chance of seeing flowers.

Radwell Meadows will feature, possibly in April; in May or June Houghton Mill and the water meadows, then Knocking Knoll a bit later. Details to be decided.

Ad hoc visits this summer have included the opportunity to see orchids on Norton Common and wild flowers at Ivel Springs, Baldock.

If we have any further ideas, members will be notified by email.
