Your local Gardening Club bids you welcome.

Derwentside Gardening Club, previously known as Annfield Plain Gardening Club, has been established for many years.

We meet in the upstairs Community Room at ASDA, Stanley at 7:00pm on the last Monday in the month, from September until May, excluding December, which is when we have our Annual Night Out. Should the last Monday of a month fall on a Bank Holiday, the meetings take place either one week earlier or one week later. (Full details on our Meetings Agenda page)


The purpose of our Club, is the promotion and furtherance of Gardening, as a pleasurable hobby, open to all ages. Our meetings, which are always friendly and relaxed usually run for approximately two hours.


We examine member's photographs on gardening, and other related topics, which lead to a useful interchange of thoughts and ideas, from which hopefully, everyone derives some benefit. During the warmer months of the year, we also try to have outdoor visits to nurseries, gardens etc, which are always entertaining and informative. (Please see our Gallery pages for previous outings).


All our members are encouraged to speak freely on any gardening related subject, whether it be submitting a query, or giving advice on someone else's problem, and we find that usually, every one leaves a little bit wiser than they were on arrival.


New members, or occasional visitors are always welcome, so why not call in and see us some time? You'll enjoy your visit, and make new friends too.


There are no fees.


Do yourself a favour, and drop in to see us. You won't regret it, I assure you. If you have any questions, you can Email me (Allan) via the link on the top of this page, or contact any of our committee members. Full details are on our Contacts Page..
