Bridport & District gardening Club has been in existence, under different titles, from the late 1920s. Currently we have membership of nearly 500 households.
Monthly members’ meetings are held at 7.30pm on Thursday evenings in the Women’s Institute Hall, North Street, Bridport. The meetings are also open to non-members (£2 entrance fee).
Membership entitles a discount on garden-related goods from Groves Nurseries.
