LATEST NEWS: All meetings cancelled until April 2021 at the earliest
Llechryd & District
Llechryd & District Garden Club was founded in 1983 by a small group of enthusiastic gardeners and has about 50 members. Their aims were to promote an interest in gardening and the growing of flowers, fruit and vegetables, whilst providing a focal point for the exchange of ideas to the advantage of horticulture in the area. These aims still guide the club today and meetings are very much social occasions as the membership mainly comes from towns and villages within a 10 mile radius of the village.
The Club has a full programme of talks on a wide range of topics. There are also social events, visits to gardens and garden shows. The committee extends a warm, friendly welcome to members and visitors throughout the year.
Members are able to freely borrow gardening books from the club library, which is available at each meeting.
Originally the group met in Llechryd but now meet at Boncath Village Hall, on the second Wednesday of the month. The hall has parking, toilets and catering facilities. The Village Hall is approximately 50m from the Post Office/Shop in the centre of the village (see map below)
Programme for 2021
The committee have made the unanimous decision to cancel all further indoor meetings until at least April 2021, when we hope to restart our programme, which will be published here. It may look very similar to last year's programme if all the speakers are willing to re-arrange their visits. A sort of Groundhog Year!

Rising Stars of the Shade Border. Epimediums, Janine Thompson returns to give an illustrated talk on this wonderful spring shade species, which thrives in our conditions.
Last meeting: Report
From the Chairman:
December is upon us and the year is drawing to a close, what a year it has been for all of us. I hope you are all keeping well and safe and still getting out in your gardens, weather permitting. We are in ours as often as we can be and actually finished a wall on our driveway even if it meant Ros pointing it by torchlight. No more building this year, instead we have lots of stone to cut to size and store ready for 2021.
It will soon be Hellebore time, something to look forward to..
If you have a preference on any of the NGS gardens you would like to visit next year in the summer on the list that Ros sent out by email last week, could you please let her know.
Next years programme is underway and will start with our Annual General Meeting in April, format to be decided dependent on how things are in March.
The annual fee is £15.00 per year (April-April, which is our AGM). There is no meeting charge. If you join part way through a year the fee is pro-rata.
The entry charge for visitors to our meetings is £3.00, which includes refreshments.
