Welcome to another Gardening Club Year – 2020 Our first meeting will be at 7.45pm 6 February in Fowlmere Village Hall. We start with our popular Group Quiz evening when Glen Link poses a variety of questions from General Knowledge, Brain teasers etc to plant identification. Do come along – a splendid opportunity to chat with other members over a glass of wine and a nibble or two!
The Quiz follows a very brief AGM when we summarise our 2019 activities and elect Committee members for 2020. Don’t worry, no-one will try and bamboozle you into joining the Committee! However, we would welcome some new faces so please speak to me before the meeting starts if you feel you can help! It will be an interesting year as we will begin to plan our celebrations to mark the Club’s Diamond Anniversary in 2022! Yes we will be 60 years!

Hello readers!

As you have probably guessed our programme of talks has been suspended until at least October. Sadly, too, our Annual Show will no longer take place in September. However, we have optimistically booked Fowlmere Village Hall for our 2021 Show!

Hanna Roberts had been busily arranging the 2020 Club tour to Yorkshire in June but unfortunately this has been cancelled too. However, we hope to arrange the same tour for June 2021 – this would include visits to Belton House, RHS Harlow Carr Garden, Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal Water Garden, Scampston Hall & Walled Garden, Breezy Knees Gardens and Elton Hall & Gardens. There are still a few places available – but only a few – as the 2020 participants have all elected to wait until next year to enjoy these beautiful gardens.

Do contact Hanna Roberts for the latest information -01763 209352 or hannatroberts@gmail.com

Keep safe, keep smiling and keep gardening
