We are a friendly and very active society in the North West of England, located in a small village between Bolton and Blackburn, but with members attending our meetings from a 20 mile radius.


We have meetings most months of the year (see Programme), together with day and evening visits to gardens large and small. Every summer, many of our members and friends take part in our long weekend mini-holiday, visiting gardens in other parts of the country.


Our big event of the year is the Annual Show, which takes place on the third Saturday of August. As well as the traditional horticultural classes of flowers, fruit and vegetables, we have classes for cookery, art and crafts, photography and flower arranging.  See our Show Schedule for full details.


Please have a look round our site, and if you have any questions or comments, contact our committee via the contacts page.

As 'covid' restrictions have been relaxed we are delighted to be back at The Barlow. We would ask that you are still careful and Do Not Attend if you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms of 'covid'. Masks are now mandatory please wear one if you are able to. Especially when entering or exiting the hall or when moving around.
Some windows may be open and the hall's air sanitiser will be working.
 Sanitiser will be available at the door.
