Cringleford and Eaton Horticultural Society
The society meets every second Tuesday of the month in the Cringleford Church Hall at 7.30p.m.
Most months of the year we enjoy a guest speaker on garden themes to further increase our knowledge of horticulture. There is a small charge for visitors attending their first meeting. We arrange several outings for the summer months and everybody is welcome to join us.
