Rippingale and District
Gardening Club

The Garden Club was formed in 1990 and was set up for the benefit of the residents of Rippingale village and district communities.
The purpose of the club is to promote the cultivation of plants and gardening and to provide regular communication between gardeners, in order to  develop skills in horticulture.

The club holds an AGM each September where officers are elected, accounts are approved and a calendar of events is issued. The 'new year' begins with the October meeting.

The club meets for indoor talks on the second Wednesday at 7.30 p.m. in  the months October, November, December, March, April and September. [April has been flexible] between indoor and outdoor meetings.

The outdoor meetings take the form of garden visits which are arranged for May, June and July with a meeting time of 6.30p.m. / 7 p.m. depending on the distance to be travelled. The hosts provide excellent hospitality in the form of refreshments.The indoor meetings are held in the splendid facilities of Rippingale Village Hall.

Speakers are well known in the gardening world and many travel from counties across the east of England and sometimes further afield. Gardens visited are privately owned and many have featured in national publications. Our members are never disappointed and applaud the committees endeavour. We have a regular membership of around fifty people. We are a very friendly club and new members are assured of a warm welcome.

 A full account of talks and articles can be found on the village website  www.rippingalevillage.co.uk.
The Club over a number of years has been the instigator of Rippingale Village Open Gardens and has raised £6,000 for the benefit of the Village Hall Fund and other Rippingale community clubs and projects.
