A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Local Society: Malvern

'Local groups usually meet once a month, slowing down in the alpine off-season at the height of summer. So if you’re a gardener of a different stripe, alpines are a fun way to extend your gardening season! Group meetings often involve a talk from a plant expert, a raffle and a plant sale. Groups also arrange trips out to gardens and places of interest throughout the year.'

'Aims to conserve and protect the best elements of Malvern’s heritage in the built and natural environments while seeking to encourage high standards of planning and design for the enhancement of Great Malvern and the surrounding area ... The Malvern Civic Society hold monthly meetings with talks from speakers on a wide variety of topics.'

Our members are a mixture of people who are local to Malvern and Worcestershire, whose roots can be local or spread far and wide, and those further afield with family links back to this area.' Monthly meetings, usually on the first Wednesday.
