Great Hockham Gardening Club serves not only Great Hockham but the villages and towns that surround it as well. We hold our indoor meetings at the Edinburgh Hall, Great Hockham, so as long as you can get there with relative ease, you’re more than welcome to come and join us.
We pride ourselves on being a friendly club with emphasis on both gardening and social gatherings. During the winter months, we tend to listen to speakers but as soon as the days lengthen and the weather improves, we are out and about visiting the many places of local interest – and sometimes further away by way of coach trips.
Indoor meetings are held from October until April in Edinburgh Hall, Harling Road, Gt Hockham at 2pm on the second Wednesday of the month. See the Programme Page for a list of this season's details. Each indoor meeting includes an informal competition with threee separate catagories to find the best flower, vegetable and photo created by a club members. Entries are usually judged by the speaker. The person who performs best in each category throughout the season wins a £10 prize.
A vegetable or fruit: just one, or bunch, like grapes.
A seasonal, local photograph.
Indoor meetings include a raffle and all memebers are asked to provide two prizes at the beginning of the season as part of their membership. We also have prizes donated by local businesses. The club also runs a seed bank, and members are encouraged to collect seeds from their own gardens and take seeds from the bank to try themsleves.
