Welcome to the Painter's Forstal Gardeners' Club

Find us on Facebook

Founded in December 1979, the Painter's Forstal Gardeners' Club provides a welcoming environment for gardeners of all abilities with gardens and allotments great and small to meet, exchange tips, share knowledge and to socialise. We have regular meetings, many of which will host a talk by either one of the club members or a visiting guest.


We usually have one meeting a month, check out our programme schedule for upcoming meetings and events.

You don't have to be a resident of Painters Forstal to be a member, we currently have around 90+ members and we would welcome new members should you wish to join us.
