About Us

The Club can trace its origins back to the early 1900’s when Worplesdon Horticultural Society was formed. The original idea was that the Society together with Worplesdon W.I. would hold annual Village Shows, which would encompass horticulture, crafts, cooking etc. The shows had separate sections for estates/large landowners and smaller gardens and allotments and proved to be very successful and with only a break during the 1st World War were run for many years. 
 

Unfortunately economic circumstances changed with the loss of sponsors and the effects of the 2nd World War, meant that the annual show became unviable. It was at that this stage that the Horticultural Society changed to become Worplesdon Garden Club and over subsequent years has always had an active membership and now meets every 2nd Tuesday of the month from 8:00 - 10:00p.m. at Emmanuel Parish Centre, Shepherds Lane, Stoughton, Guildford. 

 

There is a full programme of speakers and events throughout the year and we have a Summer Show as the Club inherited several cups and trophies dating back to the days of the village shows in early 1900’s. These are still presented every year. 

 

New members are aways welcome so why not come along one night.
