“The Group have around fifty members. We meet once or twice a month and visit gardens in the area during the Spring, Summer and early Autumn. Each month the group meets informally at a garden center for drinks and a chat. (and plants) We also have festive and summer lunches and a coach trip. Occasionally, during the Winter months, we have an indoor meeting in Low Fell, Gateshead. All new members welcome - please contact Audrey by phone or e-mail.
