Gardening Club

Cheriton Bishop Gardening Club has been running for many years. We have monthly meetings during the winter months, a Spring Show, a Cream Tea and Mini-show in May, the main Village Show in August, and a very good Annual Dinner in November. We also do a bulk seed order in the autumn with D. T. Brown.

We have friendly links with Drewsteignton Gardening Club and have a joint meeting each September, alternating which Village it is held in. October and November meetings have a speaker, the December one is for making seasonal decorations with seasonal refreshments as well. The January meeting is a Gardening Quiz, again with participation from Drewsteignton Club, then February and March meetings have speakers.

2023 Events

Cream Tea and Mini-show

Saturday 3rd June 2023, 2.30 – 4.00pm in the Spalding Hall

Our annual cream tea and mini-show is a little later this year, but just the same quality! To enter the  mini-show, which is open for anybody to enter, walk round your garden on the morning of 3 rd and pick one flower of each type in bloom. Arrange in your own vase and bring along to the Spalding Hall any time after 2pm. The vases are judged by those coming to the cream tea. They are invited to place a coin beside the vase they think is the best both for the quality of the flowers and the number of varieties. The winner is the one with the most coins, not the most profitable!

Besides the cream teas there will be a raffle and some second-hand gardening books and plants for sale.

Village Show 2023
