We also arrange visits to gardens and events during the summer months and have a gardening competition during the summer. This competition is purely for fun and can take a number of different formats.

We try to improve the general appearance of the village by, for example, planting spring bulbs along the verges.

It is envisaged that there will also be a facility for seed and cutting swapping for anyone interested in taking part.

One of the highlights of the year is the Christmas Party which is always very well attended and enjoyed by all (particularly the singing!!).

If you are interested in joining us (£10 p.a.) please contact Richard Goldsmith at [email protected] or 01963 220841
