“Garden Photography” by Mark Saunders

Mark is Head Gardener at Fittleworth House where the Society visited a few years ago and has also talked to us about the garden.  No doubt he will make us green with envy with some stunning photographs – and hopefully how to take them! Don’t forget the competition – five stems from your garden. With the current mild weather maybe the snowdrops will be out!  Hopefully see you there.

We are still wanting larger pots 4”/5”/6” – thank you to those of you who have had a “sort out”. 

Dates for your diary:  

  • Monday 2nd March – AGM and Quiz.
  • Wednesday 10th June – Visit to Lullingstone Castle and The World Garden

New Committee Members Needed – Potentially to Replace Chairman and Secretary in 2021

Our Chairman (Philip Midwinter) and Secretary (Linda Hatcher) are to give notice at the AGM in March that they will only serve one more year, if elected, on the committee of the Horticultural Society.  I am hoping that there may be members of the society, or maybe outside the society, who will come forward to join the committee.

Horticultural experience is not really necessary, and it would be good to shadow Philip and Linda since they have been so good as to give us a year’s notice. Should we be unable to get new committee members, the future of the society and especially the August Show (our main event) may not continue and will leave a large hole at the Village Fete. 

The Society has been part of the fabric of the village since 1952 and I have been honoured to have been associated with it for very many years.

If you are in any way interested and would like to know more, please contact me on 01403 700606  or Philip on 01403 700402.
