We normally hold meetings in Wells Town Hall during the cooler months of the year. Unfortunately, the event that was planned for the 9th of September 2021 has been cancelled and the programme for 14 October and 11 November has been postponed to sometime next year.
However, we can meet socially and get together at garden visits.

In the year 2021 so far, in the summer months, we have managed to make three visits to fabulous local gardens. In June we visited Stoberry Park with breath-taking views over the City of Wells and the Vale of Avalon, walled garden, ponds, wildflower meadow, sunken garden, potager, lime walk and plenty of benches to sit and relax. In July we were once again welcomed by James Cross at the Bishop's Palace Garden and wandered about on a beautiful summer's evening. And in August Simon Tudway Quilter kindly agreed to allow our club exclusive access to the 5 acre garden on the lower slopes of the Mendips. There were some interesting walks into the arboretum, along the terraces, herbaceous borders, rose beds and swimming pool with splendid views of the City of Wells.
Events that had been planned to take place from September 2021 onwards are now not taking place, except for our garden visit to Yeo Valley Garden In Blagdon at the beginning of that month. We have postponed listening to Sue Fisher about "Gardening in a Changing Climate - How to Future Proof Your Garden". We are also going to invite Colin Varndell again to talk to us about "The Hedgehog Predicament", sometime next year.
