About Suffolk Orchid Society
What we do
Our meetings are normally held on the fourth Wednesday of the month. We do not have meetings in July, August or December. Meetings start at 7.30pm. Please refer to the “Events” section of this website for up to date information.
You can find it next to the small shopping centre and the Douglas Bader pub where there is ample parking. It is a large modern church hall with good facilities.

Refreshments follow and a raffle is drawn.
We pride ourselves in giving new members a friendly welcome.
