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

NEXT EVENT: 1 October 2016 - Autumn Show 2 - 4 pm, Yapton and Ford Village Hall Our final show of the year so your last chance for 2016 to have a go at exhibiting.  If you have in your garden a large sunflower head, a huge marrow or pumpkin or perhaps a big and heavy potato, carrot or apple, then we have a class for you.  We also have slightly more serious classes for chrysanthemums, dahlias, fruit and vegetables, cooking, handcrafts, floral art and photography.  There are classes for children - please see our Children page. Staging is from 8 - 10.15 am and the show opens at 2.  Do come along for a cup of tea and a piece of David's legendary cake, to enjoy the show and perhaps to take part in our raffle and tombola.  There will also be cakes and preserves for sale.

A plea for jam jars : several members of your committee make jams and chutneys to sell at our shows to raise funds for the Society.  We are always short of jamjars.  If you can collect any and bring them to one of our events, we would really appreciate it. We will steralise them and supply new lids, but if you could rinse them out first, that would be great.  Many thanks.

We always welcome new members -  please see our Membership section for details of how to join, at a cost of only 6 per year per household.
