Information and links for clubs and associations in the Stokenham Parish area.
Stokenham Garden Society has served the Village and Parish since the end of World War ll.
We meet monthly between September and April. Each meeting features a guest speaker, followed by refreshments and a question-and-answer session, and over the year we cover a variety of gardening and horticulture subjects. We currently have 30 members with a wide mix of knowledge and backgrounds.
In addition to our monthly meetings we hold several social events throughout the year, with a couple of bring & share suppers, normally followed by a quiz. Our annual Spring Flower and Daffodil Show takes place in March. A club luncheon is held every autumn and this year several members stayed on for afternoon tea (obviously only those with hollow legs – no names will be mentioned!)
At the end of the season each May we run a successful plant and cake stall to raise funds for the club. Other ad hoc events planned include trips to gardens, and a bring-your-own-bottle fish and chips evening at a local beach in June.
Annual membership costs £10, with an additional £1.00 payable for each session attended, which includes refreshments and raffle. Guests are welcome, and pay a £2.00 entry fee.
We meet at Stokenham Parish Hall at 7.15 for a 7.30 start on the second Tuesday of each month. For further information contact Linda Fox on 07714 797777.
