Horticultural Society

Woldingham & District Horticultural Society has been thriving for over 80 years and currently has about 190 members. Every year the Society organises three shows – Spring, Summer and Autumn; a spring plant sale and an autumn coffee morning and plant sale; a series of lectures; a visit to one or two gardens of special interest. In the village it tends the rose beds in the Crescent and the flower bed at the station. Recently it has planted large numbers of daffodil bulbs and snowdrops at various sites around the village.
