|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 : 1 June 2019 Garden visit to Dale Park Gardens, Madehurst. 1.45 arrival for 2.00 start. This is a pre-booked event. If you would like to go and have not signed up, please contact Anne Hollis (see contact) to see if there are any spaces left. Full directions were in the last newsletter.
Saturday 29 June 2019 Early Summer show. 2.00 - 4.00
Yapton and Ford Village Hall. Please get your entry slips to Roy
or David by Wednesday 25 June at the latest. Why not have a go at
showing if you haven't before? There are classes for everyone,
from horticulture to cooking and photography to floral art. And
do encourage any little ones in your family to have a go - their
classes are on the Children page of the website and their entries are
free. Staging time is 8.15-10.15 sharp. If you're not
showing, just come along to enjoy the beautiful display of roses, sweet
peas and other exhibits, to have a cup of tea and cake (or maybe a
scone?) and to pick up some great value plants, home bakes and preserves?
For membership enquires please contact Jan Wood email@example.com or 01243 554501. Your 2019 subscription is now due. Many thanks if you have already renewed.
