Denton Gardening Club
Denton Gardening Club normally meets on the 3rd Tuesday most months (though there are occasional exceptions, like December one year). Between October and April meetings with guest speakers are held in the village hall and in the summer meetings include evening outings locally, perhaps a visit to a garden or nursery, as well as meetings in our own members' gardens.
We also hold an Annual Show, summer outings, plant sales and other events. New members are most welcome so do come along and join us. Details of the current programme appear below.

Club Programmes 2021-22
The Coronavirus Emergency prevented any meetings forming the 2021 Summer Programme, or indeed the 2020/21 Winter Programme, taking place.
And the annual Open Show, had to be cancelled.
However, things are gradually improving and the first meeting was held on October 19th.
Full details of the Winter Programme can be seen Here.
And of the Summer Programme can be seen Here.
Christmas Tree Competition 21
A group of Club members joined together to create an entry in the 2021 Alburgh Church Christmas Tree Festival. To their great delight, following a poll of those attending, they were rewarded with First Prize.

The Annual Show
An Annual Open Show is held either in July or, more commonly, at the beginning of September, or even at the end of August!
Due to the COVID Emergency both the 2020 and 2021 Shows had to be cancelled.
Fingers have been crossed for better things in 2022!
However a definite date has now been announced. It is Saturday 3rd September.
Further information about the 2022 Show can be seen on the Show Page.
Records of the winners at previous Shows appear on the Show History Page.
