Wye Garden Society

Our Meetings

Meetings are usually on the third Friday of the month, January - March, May & June and September - November. Our Annual Plant Sale is held in St Briavels in late April.

We meet alternately at Mackenzie Hall, in Brockweir and the Pavilion, St Briavels. We take a break from regular meetings during the summer months. We hold our AGM in November.

Everyone is always welcome to our meetings (visitors £5.)

Supporting our local Bees

We have also supported the welfare of our local bees. Our annual grant award scheme, which encouraged new people to take up beekeeping, began in 2009 and awarded at least one grant each year between then and 2019. The Scheme is currently suspended.


We are planning a return to regular monthly, in-person meetings from September (government guidance permitting). On the 17th, we will welcome Laura Wilgoss to talk about Building Beautiful Borders - the principles of good border design: structure, balance, maintenance and above all the plants themselves – which to choose and inspiring ways to combine them.

A members only Celebration Picnic will take place on 21 August - details will be emailed to members early in the month.

Non-members are always welcome to join our regular monthly meetings. Entry £5

Missed a meeting? Reports of our monthly meetings are published in Village News, our parish mag for Brockweir, Hewelsfield & St Briavels, as well as on our website
