Down Ampney Gardening Club


Down Ampney Gardening Club is in its 33rd year. It is open to all residents in Down Ampney and the surrounding districts. Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month at 7.30 pm in the Down Ampney Village Hall and has a monthly speaker or social activity which includes visits to other gardens. Following the talk, you can buy a raffle ticket and enjoy refreshments.

The annual subscription for 2021 is £5 payable in January.

Entrance to club meetings is free to members and normally £2 (£5 when a social) for visitors.

A Plant Sale is held in May. Everyone is ‘urged’ to bring their spare plants and purchase some bargains. Profits go towards paying for speakers. The popular Annual Village Show is in September.
