Welcome to Rugby Gardener's Guild Website.
The Rugby Gardeners Guild
The Rugby Chrysanthemum Society, which had been in existence for over 50 years, decided to widen its activities by bringing together local people interested in gardening.
They believed that there should be an opportunity in Rugby for gardeners to join together for talks and lectures by garden experts, visits to horticultural shows, gardens and nurseries.
The result of the survey carried out with the help of the Percival Guild House was very encouraging and a meeting was arranged on 23rd October 2007, at which it was agreed to form The Rugby Gardeners Guild.
A steering committee under the Chairmanship of Mr Keith Foster prepared the Guilds constitution and arranged a programme of six meetings and three outings for 2008. These proved to be popular and interesting at the end of the first year the membership of the Guild was 95.
Some members of the Guild have been involved in "Rugby in Bloom" as entrants and in 2011 three members were involved in the judging process. We also gave help to a local senior school which went on to win a platinum award in 2010.
