- The Club was founded in 1975 and is based in
the twin villages of West and East Hanney.
We have a membership of
around 60, and we are a friendly and informal organisation.
We meet in the Hanney War Memorial Hall on the first Monday of each
month, with tea and coffee from 7.45pm and a speaker from 8:00pm.
Topics cover all aspects of gardening.
This year the topics will
include 'Combining bulbs and plants in pots for winter interest'
and 'Encourage wildlife into your garden'. We also have Summer Visits - please use the link on the left to see reports on these.
The social highlights of
the year are the Christmas Party and the Travelling Garden Party in
late July or early August.
Membership is only £8 per person per year (guests £2),
why not come along?

The founding of the club
In 1975 the Church decided to start a village newsletter and a
gardening club and give them financial backing until
they got going. Meetings probably started at the end of
1975 and were held in the barn at Lydbrook Farm. Later they
moved to the Bowling Alley at the Crown in EH. The first
chairman was called Harold George who lived at the corner
of Ashfield Close. A tree was planted there in his memory
by the club when he died. The first Treasurer, Jim Lidbury
still lives in St James View and Ann Fewins took over as secretary
from Nat Reason.
