In 1974, a small group of people interested in gardening started to meet on an informal basis in Godstone.  Very soon these became regular monthly meetings for exchange of information, ideas and views.  These meetings took place in the White Hart Barn in Godstone – where our meetings are still held today.  Soon a full yearly programme was in place – Speakers – including Roy Lancaster, Pippa Greenwood and Fergus Garrett from Great Dixter.  We also have Plant Sales, Shows, Coffee mornings and trips to gardens – local and national.

In 2000, the first year the R.H.S. used Ranelagh Gardens at Chelsea, we entered the Courtyard Garden class and were surprised to have our design accepted.  Somehow we won a Bronze Medal. It was very hard work, especially the break down day when it rained and rained and rained.  We also entered the Hampton Court Flower Show in the Hanging Basket and Window Box class where we achieved a Silver Medal.

Since then we have been on several holidays to various parts of the country to visit gardens and enjoy each others company.

This year there will be a special Garden Party to mark 50 years of the Club.  We shall be placing an oak bench in the garden at the White Hart Barn with an explanatory plaque.  A full Programme is in place for 2024 and we hope that the club will continue for many years to come.

Meetings start at 8pm in the White Hart Barn, in the centre of Godstone, Surrey, RH9 8DU.  Visitors pay £3 per meeting.
