The Plant Sale, held on May 11th at the Memorial Hall, was a huge success, raising valuable funds for the Society.

Our Gardens Visit to Elwell Street on June 6th was very well attended and members were clearly delighted with what they saw. We were blessed with a lovely sunny evening again. The garden at Batch Cottage was a delightful walled garden with beautiful roses and perennials as well as a greenhouse and small vegetable plot.
Across the road at No. 7, we found a large well established garden with expansive lawns and borders, also a greenhouse and vegetable plot. The terrace was set up with tables and chairs ready for drinks and food, a very pleasant evening indeed.
Our next event will be the Summer Show on August 17th at the Memorial Hall. Click on the ‘Shows’ link for full details.
