A very peculiar gardeners’ year

Many gardeners will say that as winter approaches, it is the end of the gardening year. Others advocate that it is the beginning and you will yield the results next year due to the preparation done now.

This edition would have been mostly about our Summer Show that was due to take place in July. We would have been blessed with marvelous weather and I’m sure the day would have been a tremendous occasion. The last time the show was cancelled was during the Second World War although a show did take place in 1945, where money was raised for the local forces tribute fund. There was a similar occurrence in the Great War, it again resuming in 1919. After such a long period of absence during both wars, I bet it was a great morale booster for the village.

Members of the Cottage Garden Society have been saddened by the loss of two most prominent members who have passed away.


Summer Show

Spring update

Unfortunately with the Covid-19 virus the garden society programme for 2020 came to an abrupt end in early March. All meetings were cancelled and the Summer Programme has been put on hold until further advice is received from the Government. This has of course meant the unfortunate cancellation of our Summer Show, which would have been held on Saturday 18th July.
