|Yapton and District Cottage Gardeners' Society|
Welcome to the homepage of the Yapton Cottage Gardeners Society website. We are a very active Society - each year we hold four shows, where members and guests have the opportunity to show their flowers, fruit and vegetables, floral art, cookery and photos. We also always have a large number of competition classes for children. As well as our shows, we hold members' meetings when speakers entertain us with talks and slide shows on a variety of topics, some horticultural and some of general local or topical interest. We hold two plant sales a year and put on entertainment for our members and guests in the form of barn dances and annual concerts. Please have a look at our events calendar.
The next event is our Evening Meeting on Feb 20th in the Club Room of Yapton and Ford Village Hall at 7.30 pm. There will be an illustrated talk by Peter Liverman on the subject of Alpines - A Brief Introduction. There will be pictures of alpines growing wild in various parts of the world and advice on how to grow them in this country. There will also be refreshments and a raffle.
There are two events in March – our Barn Dance on March 9th at 8pm and the first show of the year on March 24th. The latter will be open to the public at 2pm and the hall should be filled with spring flowers, shrubs and bulbs. I should also mention vegetables, floral art, photography, and children’s classes. Schedules will be available at the Primrose Sale if you fancy having a go at any of the classes. We welcome exhibits from existing people who stage and also from newcomers who have never staged before.
