Droxford Village Community

Meon Valley Garden Club

The Meon Valley Garden Club has been in existence for over 100 years, although up to twenty years ago it was known as the Meon Valley Flower Show Society.  It is a friendly and sociable group, drawing its membership from the villages of the Meon Valley and further afield including Horndean, Fareham, Southampton and Portsmouth.

The club offers its members the benefits of a full programme of activities throughout the year, which includes Spring and Summer Shows, visits to gardens, talks, plant sales and social events.
