Wishing you all a Happy New Year.
2020 has come and gone and what a year, most people are thinking thank goodness. Even on a cold and dull January day and in lockdown again we are looking forward to better things to come as the year unfolds into spring.
Back to 2020, the Society was unable to have any meetings or events to raise funds, as a result membership has plummeted and our bank balance is very low. If subscriptions are not paid on time and new members joining we cannot continue to have events, shows or Open Gardens. To lose what is a very British Institution would be a shame for the village as the Society has been in existence since 1896 and without more village support it will close.
We are a very friendly club; your level of gardening experience is no bar to joining us. New faces and ideas are always welcome.
During the lockdown restrictions many of you have spent more time in the garden and have found great satisfaction in growing veg and having some colourful flower borders. It is an easy way to keep fit in the fresh air and help mental health. Your efforts last year have not gone unnoticed by residents and visitors so keep up the good work.
Stay well and safe. Good Gardening.
