Down Ampney Gardening Club
Down Ampney Gardening Club is in its 32nd year. It is open to all residents in Down Ampney and the surrounding districts. Meetings are 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 is £10 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.
DOWN AMPNEY VILLAGE SHOW 2020 - cancelled
It is with deep regret that the committee has decided that it is not tenable to hold the village show this year due to the restrictions in place because of Covid-19
Both events are great fun.
