Hello! It is good that you found us. You are welcome to contact our Secretary before coming along to experience a monthly meeting. We are a friendly bunch who love our trees. We show them each month on our display table. All varieties of trees are brought out over the year. Its wonderful to discuss what might improve them.

  We meet on the first Thursday of each month. (See Calendar)

Tea, coffee and biscuits are available to ensure that you do not get parched during the three hour sessions.

We have guest speakers, display show trees at a local venues, exhibit at annual trade fairs and hold regular workshop days on Saturdays.

Recently some local East Midlands clubs have folded through lack of numbers. Something we do not have. We have taken in several new membesr from such groups. Although the journeys from Bedford, Peterborough are not that wonderful at night, remember that travel sharing is sometimes possible.
