November 2nd  Gardening for Climate Change – A speaker from the Gold Club

December 7th  Fun Quiz and Christmas Supper

Our Society entered the Dorset Federation Inter-Society Show on 12th September at Tarrant Keyneston Village Hall near Blandford.

It took a very early start to stage our 43 exhibits. We were very pleased to win eight first prizes, including three Best Exhibit trophies; Best Wine exhibit (sloe gin),  Best Cactus Exhibit ( Cactus/Succulent Collection) and Best Exhibit in Pot Plants (Collection of Three). A very enjoyable day indeed. Many thanks to all who contributed items, also to those who transported them to the show and helped with staging.
