We are an active club for gardeners and those interested in gardening living in or in the surrounding area of the village of Quorn, near Loughborough, Leicestershire. The Club was formed in 1996.
A varied programme of talks, outings and activities is organised throughout the year. For talks and gardening demonstrations we meet on the third Thursday of the month at 7.30 pm in the Church Rooms, Quorn, LE12 8DP (map). All indoor meetings are free to our members; visitors are very welcome for a charge of £3 per meeting. A welcome tea or coffee is available on arrival from 7pm. In the summer months we have visits to local gardens and places of horticultural interest, for which an additional charge may be made. In July we hold an annual Plant Swap.
Our Annual General Meeting is held in January when we appoint the Club's Officers and when subscription payments are due (£25 for individual membership). Subscriptions run for the calendar year. Members joining in the period September-December are credited with membership for the following year.
