There is always a plant stall where
some excellent bargain plants can be purchased, and a raffle with
worthwhile prizes. At the end of the evening there is an opportunity to
chat to fellow members over a cup of tea and a biscuit (free!).
Annual membership is £7.50 (due each January) and there is no charge for meetings.
shows are held each year: the first in June, where all entries are of
the flowering kind, and the second in August when vegetables, flowers,
pot plants, cookery, preserves and floral arrangements are exhibited
with friendly rivalry among the exhibitors. At the end of the show we hold an auction, amid much hilarity, of left-over produce.
July monthly meeting is what we call the “Supper Evening”, when our
members provide a buffet meal and we can sit and enjoy a chat with our
friends. The December meeting is the A.G.M. and we have a similar buffet
meal. On this occasion we collect the seeds which we order from a
well-known supplier, and which we are able to buy at a large discount.
also have coach outings each year to places of interest to gardeners,
as well as a club dinner in March and a club lunch in November.
