February News and March events

A good number of members and visitors attended the February meeting when local historian, Sue Virgin, spoke about Upwey as it used to be. Upwey was an almost self-sufficient village with all the shops needed for everyday life. We were shown photographs of ‘then and now’ buildings with most commercial premises now converted to housing.

Our next meeting will be on March 7th when Bryan Madders will speak about ‘Dahlias for Pleasure’.

Our Spring Show takes place on March 16th in the Memorial Hall, Victoria Avenue, Upwey. There are classes in horticulture, cookery, flower arranging, handicrafts and photography. There is also a children’s section. All classes open to all. Full details can be found via the ‘shows’ link.
