It is intended that this page will be updated regularly to highlight current Branch news and forthcoming events.



As usual, the branch will be holding several plant sales this year. Please come along and meet our members, ask questions and receive free advice, learn more about the BCSS and Teesside Branch in particular - and, of course, get some bargains, you'll find our prices extremely competitive.

Monday, May 29th

Durham University Botanic Garden, Durham

10:00am to about 4:00pm (free admission to sales)

Sunday, June 11th

Yarm Charities Fair, High Street, Yarm

11:00am to about 5:00pm (free admission)

Yarm Charities Fair has been postponed at less than 48 hours notice due to circumstances entirely beyond the control of the branch. Despite this event having been held without incident for a number of years, it seems that this year Yarm Town Council have failed to satisfy Stockton Borough Council's Health & Safety requirements.
