Essex AGS Local Group


We are a friendly welcoming group and meet on the last Thursday of the Month ( excluding December) at the New Village Hall, Church Road, Rawreth, Wickford Essex. SS11 8SH. Meetings commence at 7.30 pm. If you have an interest in alpine plants, whether you like to see them in the wild or grow them at home in the garden or greenhouse, this is the group for you. We have plant sales, a monthly competition, raffle and library. We have a speaker each month who talks and shows slides on various alpine plants. The evening is rounded off with the raffle and a cup of tea/coffee. For further information phone the Secretary: Ruth Jones on 01245 227190  or email
