THE NEXT ANNUAL SHOW WILL BE HELD ON 24TH JULY 2021.
In the absence of last year’s Annual Plant Sale and Show, Maureen Barton, a member of our committee,
set up a Facebook page “Growing Together” to encourage people to garden.
She provides tips, advice and practical videos from her own garden. In just 12 months there are
now over 7,500 followers and lots of appreciative feedback. During Lockdown she
has created two further Facebook pages, within the restrictions of Covid 19,
for followers to swap surplus plants and produce, and to share seeds for
sowing. For further information see https://www.facebook.com/groups/1431012233745894/?ref=share

On behalf of the Society, I want to say a massive thank you to everyone who came and supported us at the Plant Sale and helped to make it such a huge success. A particular thank you to all those that kindly donated plants, and all the lovely people who contributed cakes making that stall so laden and attractive. Heather says nearly all the cakes were sold! The happy band of enthusiastic helpers were amazing and a wonderful support in putting on such a fantastic event – hard enough without following the extra rules!
A special word of thanks to Sarah & David at the Rose & Crown for allowing us the use of the marquee and grounds as well as contributing to the cake stall. Blessed with beautiful weather, it all added up to a most memorable day and significant financial boost to help fund the Annual Show on 24th July when we look forward to seeing you.
Best regards to all,
The Horticulture Society has been nominated to be one of the charities to receive money from the Co-op Community Fund from 28 OCTOBER 2020 to 23 OCTOBER 2021. The money raised will go towards the cost of putting on the Annual Show.
The support of the Co-op has been invaluable for recent shows and helps to go towards the cost of the large marquee which is what makes the show unique and traditional. A big thank you to all those who chose the Society as their charity and to the Co-op for their Community Fund for support during the funding period that has just ended.
Action is needed NOW !
Co-op members must confirm/reconfirm their choice of charity to receive support for every new period of funding. The current 12 month funding period has just ended, now is the time to confirm/reconfirm for the coming year.
