LATEST NEWS We are meeting again!
The Club held it’s first meeting for over two years on Friday the 6th May at the Parish Hall. It was good to welcome both existing members who were glad to see each other again and also a fair number of new faces whom we hope to see more of in the future. We would really like to encourage new members – especially newcomers to gardening.
Many local residents will have noticed some tree planting around the area and so we were lucky to have a talk by Jane Ambrose who helps to manage the scheme, and who continues to raise funds from the sale of plants from her garden for this and other good causes. Jane outlined the origins of the tree planting initiative, which is on a national scale, and gave us a preview of future plans for Stockbridge and Donnington
Normally the Club would next meet on the first Friday in June but this is one of the days when we will be celebrating the Queen’s jubilee so we will wait until Friday 1st July to meet up again when we expect to welcome back one of our favourite speakers.. Please do come along and join in. You will be most welcome. 7.30 pm start. Entry £2.00. Meanwhile you can contact our Chairman, Brian Turbefield on 01243 782729 or email email@example.com.
We meet on the first Friday of the month (except in January) at Donnington Parish Hall, Stockbridge Rd, Donnington, Chichester, West Sussex.
Membership costs £10 a year and visitors to our meetings are always welcome (entrance £2)
We have a wide range of illustrated talks and demonstrations, with refreshments, raffle, plant sales and a table top competition for flowers, fruit and vegetables. Other events include; 3 shows a year, an annual plant sale, and visits to gardens large and small.
We are all amateurs, who enjoy learning from each other, so do come along and join us!
