Large garden, small window box, devoted gardener or just a passing interest? Why not join your local gardening club?

West Bergholt Gardeners offers something for every taste with our diverse yearly programme.  Meetings are held at 7.30pm in the Orpen Hall on a Monday during the months of February to May, and September to December.

Message to Members – June 2021

It has been such a long time since we have been able to meet up but we are hoping that the end of the road is in sight and that we will be back in the Orpen Hall in September to start another programme of monthly talks. Although we don’t usually reveal our schedule of speakers so early we wanted to give people something to look forward this Autumn to Spring 2021/2022.

Sadly, after being forced to cancel the Open Gardens event last year we naturally thought we would be able to run it this year instead but in these uncertain times this will not be happening. However, all being well, we are planning to welcome visitors and raise more money for our nominated charities once again in 2022, hoping for better times to come.

Dates for 2021/22 are:


  • 29th June – visit to Strandlands, Wrabness,
  • 24th July – at the Village Fete,
  • Others still in planning stages are:
    • an ex Head Gardener from Madingley Hall, Cambridge,
    • creating a Christmas Willow Wreath,
    • a Rose Grower who likes to ramble on,
    • a Garden Designer to keep us up to date on current trends,
    • an Adviser on all aspects of Pruning, and
    • a Question Time session.


We are a very friendly group of people and new members are always welcome.  Why not come as a guest for one meeting to find out more; have a chat, enjoy some refreshments and maybe win a raffle prize 1 ticket 50p or 5 for £2. Joining us is simple and inexpensive with an annual subscription of £15 due in September. Non-Members welcome – only £3.50 per visit on Speaker nights.

For further information,  please contact Terry Claydon on 01206 241256 – [email protected].

We look forward to seeing you.
