What people say about Hook Gardening Club
I had a lovely attentive audience who seemed receptive to the ‘working with (and for) wildlife’ gardening methods at Shandy Hall. Thanks to Hook Gardening Club for inviting me!
Wonderful talk, thoroughly enjoyed and will be going to see Shandy hall and its beautiful garden. First visit for me and my parents to the gardening club, we were made very welcome and looking forward to next month’s meeting.
Had my first but certainly not my last visit last night I will certainly be back. Lovely group, interesting speaker, a great community group. Thanks for your welcome.
Many thanks for a lovely evening. Everyone was really welcoming and friendly and it was great to be back at Hook Gardening Club, this time with Jill for our Gardening on the Menu talk – Martin Fish
The garden club is an excellent addition for Hook. For many reasons but we have always loved gardening and it gives us chance to keep in touch with new ideas from the wide variety of speaker to the social part. It has helped us integrate ourselves into the village.
‘Great to meet everyone and for being so welcoming. Hope to see you at RHS Harlow Carr sometime
