Outings

The Society runs a number of coach outings each year exclusively for their members to places of "gardening interest". There are usually two coach pick up points - one in Sidney Road (adjacent to Churchfield Road, and the other at St Peter's Church, Burwood Road, Hersham. Prompt booking is advised on all outings as they are very popular.
