Cambourne Garden Club

The Club meets informally in the bar of the Belfry Hotel at 7.30pm on the fourth Wednesday  of the month.

If you have an allotment, a garden or just a window box, come along and share your problems, hints and questions with like-minded people, some with green fingers and some just with muddy fingers. This is a light-hearted and friendly self-help group.

There is no charge while the Club is meeting at the Belfry, apart from the price of a drink.

For further info on the club, contact Wendy on 01954 202484.
