The Guild has been in existence for over 60 years and meets on the second Wednesday of every month in Church House starting at 7:30pm.
We are a friendly group with a shared interest in anything to do with horticulture, quite a few of us are complete novices.
We have visiting speakers on a wide range of subjects, mostly garden related. There is a monthly competition (not compulsory) with four classes:-
- for which points are awarded to add towards an annual trophy.
On a Saturday morning in May we have a fund raising Plant Sale and coffee morning, get your bargain plants and gorgeous cakes.
In July we have "The Rose and Sweet Pea Show"for Guild members only, this has about 12 classes including pot plants, garden flowers and some baking, so that everyone can find something to enter. While the judging is in progress we usually visit a members garden.
Our August meeting is an organised trip, usually to a garden.
September is the great 'Potato Weigh In', the bucket and single potato given to each member in the spring is returned and the contents emptied and weighed to see who has the heaviest crop. This is usually quite a boisterous evening, especially when a bucket has had the added interest of a mouse or an ants nest. This is followed by a chip supper.
Also on a Saturday in mid September we have our Annual Show which is open to all, non members and children are especially welcome. There are categories for cut flowers, pot plants, vegetables, fruit,flower arranging, baking and photography. A show schedule will be available online or from the village shops or our secretary in August.
New members are welcome, the annual membership fee is £12-00. You could come to one of our meetings, pay a visitors fee of £1-50.
