Long Description:

The Caton and Brookhouse Gardening Club was founded, way back in 1882, with the rather grand sounding name of The Caton and District Floral and Horticultural Society, in order to foster an interest in horticulture and to provide a community of interest in the district.

In the early days it had a full committe of very knowledgeable people and  flourished as a genuine ‘Horticultural Society’, the centrepiece of it’s annual calendar being a full blown ‘mini Chelsea’ Show.

Unfortunately, over the last decade or so of 20th century, the experienced members of the committee were becoming very thin on the ground and those who were left were ‘slowing down’, as happens to all of us as we age, so staging the show was becoming more and more difficult. At the same time the Society experienced difficulties recruiting people on to the commitee, and, sadly, it slowly started to die. Despite the efforts of Chairman Moyra Loads (wife of the late Fred Loads, one time committee member of the Society), for a short time, the Society was virtually dormant.

In 1998, Moyra’s efforts to resurrect the Society finally bore fruit. The members of the old committee handed over to a new band of people who, while they were enthusiastic, lacked the skills of the old guard. Consequently, while the Society’s official title is still The Caton and District Floral and Horticultural Society, it now operates in a much less formal way and, since 2004, under the less intimidating name of The Caton and Brookhouse Gardening Club. George Woodend became chairman and Moyra Loads was awarded life membership.

The Caton and Brookhouse Gardening Club has settled down and is thriving on a fairly fixed annual programme of events, most of which are held in the Victoria Institue in Caton at 7:30pm on the second Thursday in any month. In addition to the annual programme, committee members maintain the planters, millenium trees and the seat outside the old library.

Annual membership costs the extortionate amount of £3.50! This is payable at the AGM which is held on the second Thursday in April and starts our year which looks something like this:

May
Sees us holding our annual Plant Sale and Coffee Morning – usually on the first or second Saturday morning. We buy in plants from a local nursery and, with just a modest mark up, sell them on. This provides a service for the local community and helps us to stock our coffers which cannot manage with just a £3.50 annual subscription. We also sell plants donated by both our members and generous members of the public and, for the entry fee of £1.00 we provide tea/coffee/juice and some posh biscuits.
From 2016 we have expanded our Plant Sale to make it more of a Spring Fair. We now include, in addition to the plants, tables for various village organisations / schools / ‘craftspeople’ / people to advertise their presence and/or sell whatever they want to sell. We don’t try to make a profit from them as we want to create a convivial village atmosphere: ‘A Nice Morning out at the Victoria Institute’. However, we do have to cover the cost of the tables and, to date, the cost of a table has usually been around £4.50 for the morning. So. if you want a table at our next Nice Morning Out at the Victoria Insitiute, please contact our secretary.
June
On the second Thursday in June we have an Evening Trip to a garden in the area. The evening trip gardens are often, but not always, gardens from the Yellow Book. The Evening Trip usually involves our members in a tea drinking and cake eating activity as well as that of wandering round someone’s garden oooohing and aaaaahing and getting ideas for our own.
Every four years or so we organise the Caton and Brookhouse Open Gardens event sometime in the last fortnight of June. This event is enjoyed as much by the people who open their gardens as the people who visit the gardens and has always been a success . . . even in the years when the heavens have opened on us! To see a slide show of the 20 gardens opened in June 2018 please click the following link:  https://youtu.be/-dE4xcctKyY .
September
Is the time we host our Mini Harvest Show. This is a very informal affair for members to show off their arts. We have several classes including such things as home grown fruit and veg, some sort of baked item, a piece of craftwork with a floral theme, a flower arrangement, an indoor plant and so on. Entries are anonymous and we developed a democratic system for judging them using a voting system. Each person attending the event has one vote for every class and the winner of a class is that entry polling the most votes. We also dish up tea and posh biscuits and have a good old chin wag while the votes are being counted
October
Our Speaker Secretaries arrange for varied and interesting speakers to come to the Victoria Institute to speak to us and October sees our first ‘Speaker Evening’ of the year, accompanied, of course, by the ubiquitous tea and posh biscuits.
November
In November we do not invite a speaker; we have a Gardening DVD Night. This saves speaker fees and actually makes for a very pleasant occasion accompanied, of course, by, you guessed it, tea and posh biscuits.
December
In December we have a break from speakers and used to hold a Social Evening where we have a bit of fun. But this is not accompanied by tea and biscuits, this is accompanied by wine and nibbles.
As from 2019 our ‘Social Evening’ is being morphed into a members’ question and answer evening. This is an event where we all sit round the room guzzling mince pies and drinking tea and where a member can ask a question on a problematic gardenening issue and, hopefully, receive an answer from another memeber who has already experienced and soved the issue. Watch this space.
January
Our members are usually so busy in December that we hold our annual Festive Meal in January at some local hostelry. We usually have some sort of quiz and prize to add a bit of interest as most of us are a bit jaded by the time Christmas and New Year are over!
February
Sees our second Speaker Evening, accompanied, of course, by tea and posh biscuits.
March
Sees our third and final Speaker Evening. Guess what accompanies it? Correct 🙂

And that completes the circle with in

April
The Annual General Meeting that starts off the following year accompanied by, no, not tea and posh biscuits, but wine and nibbles.

Entry to speaker evenings for members costs just £1.00. We have between 50 and 60 members though would welcome new members at any time of year.

Non members are welcome to our speaker evenings but for a charge of £2:00.

Oh, and incidentally, membership of the Caton and Brookhouse Gardening Club entitles a member to 10% discount at WCF in Claughton and Bay View Garden Centre in Bolton-le-Sands but . . .  hold your horses . . . only on producing a current membership card and satisfactory identification.

Caton Baby and Toddler Group
Long Description:

Caton Baby and Toddler Group provides a relaxed and friendly meeting place for parents and carers with babies and small children.  It is a welcome time in the week, a chance to relax and chat together while our children play. What we offer is friendship and support, with learning and fun!

We meet every Tuesday morning (term time) between 10.00 and 11.30 am in the Victoria Institute, Brookhouse Road, Caton.  Babies and pre-school children with an accompanying adult are very welcome. There is plenty of space for running around, and a range of good quality toys – that means lots of opportunities to free-play, use different equipment, and interact with other children.  There are regular activities too, such as our child-led sing-along, and everyone gets a drink and healthy snack.

We make a small charge every week, and there is a reduction available for those who prefer to pay in advance for a whole term.  The drop-in price is £2, and this includes refreshments for both children and adults.

As our Group is led by parents and carers, and as we are with our children all the time, there is no need to become registered with OfSTED (Office for Standards in Education).  However, we do have all the required insurance for running a toddler group.

LA2 9JP
Long Description:

The earliest record of a church or chapel on the site is before 1230. The tower dates probably from the 16th century. The rest of the church was rebuilt in 1865–67 to a design by the Lancaster architect E. G. Paley.

The church is constructed in sandstone rubble, with a slate roof. Its plan consists of a four-bay nave with a clerestory, north and south aisles, a south porch, a north transept containing the organ chamber, a chancel at a lower level, and a west tower. The tower is Perpendicular in style, and has three stages, diagonal buttresses, and an embattled parapet. On the west side is a doorway, over which is a three-light window with Perpendicular tracery. The bell openings also have three lights. On the south side of the church is the porch, with four bays to the east. The bays are separated by buttresses and each contains a three-light window with Perpendicular tracery. To the left of the easternmost window is a priest’s door. Along the clerestory are four windows. The east window has three lights with Perpendicular tracery. In the west wall of the north aisle is a blocked Norman doorway containing a tympanum carved with human figures. It is filled in with coffin lids and medieval cross slabs.

Our Church Hall and Club House are available for hire.

Womens Institute
Long Description:

The Women’s Institute (WI) was formed in 1915 with two clear aims: to revitalise rural communities and to encourage women to become more involved in producing food during the First World War. Since then our aims have broadened and we are now the largest women’s organisation in the UK. We celebrated our 90th anniversary in 2005 and currently have 210,000 members in 7,000 WIs.

We play a unique role in providing women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.

Caton WI is one of the oldest in the country, having been formed in 1921. We have approximately 60 members some of whom not only meet locally but are also involved in activities with the Lancashire Federation eg. the WI choir, craft workshops, quizzes, walks etc.

Caton WI normally meets on the first Thursday of the month at the Victoria Institute. Meetings usually start at 7.30pm with a short business meeting followed by a speaker. The committee try to make the programme as varied as possible in order to satisfy the varied interests of our members. We end with light refreshments and a chance to catch up on gossip!

New members are always welcome. Just turn up on the day of the meeting, and we will look out for you.

If you have a spare bedroom and the time and desire to offer practical and emotional support, you are exactly who we are looking for.

We know that a supportive, stable home environment can make a huge difference to a young person’s chances of moving on successfully.

As a lodgings provider, you don’t have the same responsibility as a parent or foster parent, and the young person will have their own project worker. Most lodgings are for between 8 weeks and 2 years. During this time, you’ll receive a weekly payment and ongoing support from Barnardo’s.
