Autumn Season commences for Garden Club

Roseraie de l'HayThe new season gets under way for the North Luffenham Garden Club next week on Thursday October 10th at 7.30pm in the Community Centre with speaker Ann Bird on ‘A Personal Look at the World of Roses’.

Ann Bird is a past president of the Royal National Rose Society, and is currently vice-president of the World Federation of Rose Societies, so is well qualified to talk to us about this popular British garden favourite!

Fun, informal meetings with a raffle and refreshments. The club welcomes plants for sale at all meetings. No horticultural experience or expertise required – new members and guests always welcome! Cost is £2 per event or join for an annual subscription fee of £10 per person.
