BVGA Activities

Braunston Village Gardens Association (BVGA) is a village club that has an active programme throughout the year. Everyone in the village is automatically a member, no joining fee. Please contact us to find out more.

We are very open to new ideas, for example in the past we ran a successful junior gardening competition in June and July. You do not have to be involved with every event. Just let us know what you would be interested in supporting.

We have a BVGA Supporters list. Anyone on the list receives an email update linked to events that we run. However, we promise to keep emails to a minimum.
