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.
