We regret to announce that, due to the corona virus situation,
we have suspended all club meetings.
But we are keeping in touch by contributing to our monthly corona diary,

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 where the emphasis is on both gardening and social gatherings as well. 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.
Have a look through the web site. There is a wealth of information on here and if, as a member, there’s something you want to know but can’t find, then just email your question to our club secretary - address on the Committee Members page.
Why join? What do you get for your money? Well, you get free entry to all indoor meetings where we have some very interesting topics as shown in our latest programme of events.
These are held from October until April in Edinburgh Hall, Harling Road, Gt Hockham at 1400 on the second Wednesday of the month. See the Programme Page for full details of each meeting.
At each indoor meeting, we include a table show with three catagories:
A vegetable or fruit: just one, or bunch, like grapes.
A seasonal, local photograph.
At each indoor meeting there are free refreshments for members and a raffle. Each member is asked to contribute one raffle prize per year, in September. As a result, we have some really great raffle prizes.
Outdoor meetings run from May until August. Costs for outside visits are now free to members (usually) and as applicable to visitors. Refreshments are often included. Where we go varies from interesting nursery centres to members gardens to picnics - we constantly try to come up with something different and new - see the programme page for details.
