AGM and Christmas Party - Thursday 12th December 2019

Elham Gardening Society AGM

Gardening Society AGM - Thursday 12th December 2019

Unlike most AGMs, that for the Gardening Society, was well attended.
More than 50 people arrived on a very wet and windy General Election night.
Drinks were provided by the Society and food by the members.

The finances were adjudged healthy and the future programme of events promised much to look forward to.
We had news of two more trophies to be awarded next year.
The first, a beautifully engraved crystal vase for the "Best in Show" at the Spring Show - provided by our Hon Vice President, Hugh Buckhurst.
The second was the NGS "Silver Trowel" to be awarded to the most liked garden at the NGS Open Gardens event in the Summer.

An unchanged committee was re-elected and then the main business of the night could start - the Christmas Party!
Conversation and socialising went on apace before the gathering reluctantly departed home - feeling quite relaxed!

Visit to Hampton Court Thursday 9 July 2020

We are organising a trip to the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in July.

The combined cost of the Group Entry Fee and Coach this year will be £50 per person. (only slightly up on the 2018 cost). The price assumes similar support as in previous years.
If numbers are significantly lower or higher we will make an adjustment on the coach as usual. Costs include the driver’s tip.
You do not have to be an RHS member to come.
The Cross Keys coach will leave The Rose & Crown at Elham at 7.30 a.m. sharp, and we expect to be back in Elham by 6.30 p.m. approx.
If you would like to join us, kindly cut off and return the completed form -
