On February 4th 2020 the Bolton Gardeners Forum was set up at an inaugural meeting. Twenty residents agreed to join the Forum. Its purpose is to provide mutual support to Bolton residents interested in gardening at any level. It is not a membership club; the only criteria for joining the Bolton Gardeners Forum is to be interested in gardening and live in Bolton! There will not, in the first instance, be a subscription. Bolton Gardeners will meet from time to time, in the Village Hall. Events, when organised, will be advertised by flyer and on this site.
Sadly Covid-19 has meant that we have been unable to follow up on this initiative. When it becomes possible to have face to face meetings again we will relaunch the forum. Possible future activities include:
Visits to Gardens in the area
Inviting guest speakers
Sharing Gardening advice and problems
Village garden walkabout
Unfortunately Covid-19 prevented any progress on any of the Forum initiatives in 2020, but we hope to make some progress later in the year. In the meantime, courtesy of Dean Dewey we have set up a village WhatsApp group for Bolton Gardeners to share gardening information, swap plants etc. If you would like to join please contact us by email with your name and mobile number. If you are happy to be contacted by email we will also add you to the emailing list.
