|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 events are : Early Summer Show 23 June 2018 Yapton and Ford village hall. A lovely opportunity to enjoy roses, sweet peas and other horticulture on show, as well as craft and cookery exhibits, and most importantly to enjoy a cream tea! There will also be home-made cakes, bakes and preserves for sale, and some bargain plants, as well as a tombola and raffle. Why not enter an exhibit yourself, even if it's your first time?
