We have moved.

Our new venue is the clubhouse at Avon Rugby Football Club. As our old venue is not currently available for hire all talks this year will be at Avon Rugby Club. On London Road West, it is easily accessible and has ample parking at the end of a short driveway.

We began the year at our new venue, Avon RFC, with an enthusiastic talk from Marcel Floyd on Clematis. Marcel took us through the pruning of the main groups of clematis and also had plants for sale. The February talk was by Tony Russell, sharing his love and knowledge of shrubs for our gardens. In March we welcomed Christine Walkden to the Batheaston School. Christine shared her thoughts on novel planting opportunities to add colour and year round interest. The talk was attended by over 90 people and attracted a number of new members.

Two weeks after Christine's talk to the Group the government introduced strict measures on public meetings and social distancing. This means our planned visits for April and May cannot take place. The committee are working to re-schedule visits later in the year where possible. The April visit has already been re-booked for 2021!

This is a difficult time for everyone. We at least have to solace of our gardens. It is difficult for any of us to plan ahead at present. We shall aim to maintain as much of our 2020 programme as possible. If you have any questions please email [email protected] for the latest information on the programme.

In the meantime happy gardening!
