Wickham Market & District Gardening Club

Let's go

Our Club

Anyone interested in learning a little more about gardening is most welcome to come and join us.  Club membership is neither expensive nor in any sense exclusive.  Our Membership Secretary will be pleased to give you more information.  You can contact us by email or through our contact us page.


We hold meetings in Wickham Market Village Hall (IP13 0HE) at 7.30 pm on the third Thursday of most months, with speakers on all sorts of garden related topics.  We resorted to Zoom during the various COVID lockdowns and we are wondering if Zoom has a place in our future, perhaps during the cold wet winter months.  We make no charge for occasional interested visitors to our meetings, so why not come along and give us a try?

We also arrange visits to interesting gardens and nurseries during the summer months.

On the second Saturday in September we hold a Flower and Vegetable Show in the Wickham Market Village Hall.  This is open to the public from 2 – 5 pm on the Saturday and the Sunday. We are always keen to attract new exhibitors to our Show: both experienced growers from the surrounding area and those who may be new to the idea of Showing their produce.  Our Autumn Show page has much more information.

There is a monthly newsletter called Rake’s Progress that all members receive.  This has reports on recent activities and details of future attractions, together with news of local events, gardening tips and weather reports. The Club is affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society.  To see the latest Club News click here
