SLGS, the South Lincolnshire Garden Society, “Slugs”
– call it what you will – is a friendly, enthusiastic society for keen gardeners, nurserymen, nurserywomen, horticulturists and plantspeople – in fact, anyone with an interest in plants and gardening, whether experienced or eager to learn more. Most of our members live and garden somewhere within a 20–25-mile radius of Folkingham (see map), which is where our indoor meetings are held.
We have 5 indoor meetings a year, held on the fourth Thursday of the month, in alternate months from September to May inclusive, at Folkingham Village Hall. We also organise garden visits and coach trips at various times in between.
Sounds complicated? It isn’t really, but the latest programme page (see link above) has all the dates and details of our forthcoming speakers and events. Fuller details can be found on the Speakers page (with links to their websites, where appropriate).
Not sure whether you want to join or not? Try us out! You are welcome to come to our indoor meetings if you pay at the door (normally £5, except for special events). Non-members may also join one of our coach trips as a guest of a member, or when, as sometimes happens, we join forces with another local garden club.
Members have free admission to all indoor meetings (except for certain special events, when there may be a small extra charge) and enjoy preferential rates for coach outings.
SLGS membership is just £15 per year or £ for two people at the same address. Normally, membership runs from 1 January to 31 December, but if you join us on or after 1 September your first subscription will run until 31 December the following year, giving you up to 16 months’ membership for the price of 12. You can join at any time of year.
