Latest Society News & Events 2020

Take a look at what the society did last year and what we have planned for this year.

January 2020 News Update

Happy New Year to all our members and our community. We look forward to seeing you at our AGM on the 8th January 2020. It's at 7pm, at Barham Village Hall. After a quick run through of the formalities we will enjoy a short horticultural quiz, whilst we welcome in the new year and chat amongst ourselves. We will be collecting subscriptions and handing out the programmes. Still only 5 for individual membership. We will also have some of the Sutton's seed catalogues with the "discount code" affording 50 % discount off seed orders to our members. We have an interesting programme for 2020, ranging from talks covering pest control and fertilization, looking after your roses, pollination. Our garden trip will give us the opportunity to enjoy a garden specialising in delphiniums. All this and much more, most of which is included in your membership fee. This year the society is 125 years established. One of the oldest in the village. Our original minute book is still held in our archive.

We are really pleased to be helping Barham primary school with their wildlife and garden projects. With the help of the Nailbourne Foundation, the school has invested in some gardening areas to help the children with their development. We are looking to help them fund and find some tools for the volunteers to work on the spaces, to prepare them for the children to work in. If you have any unwanted tools, in good, safe working order please get in touch with me? The school needs some help with some gardening to get the projects fully operational, so if you can spare an hour or two please contact me and I can add you to the list, where we can notify you when we are getting together.

I would still like some help with our Facebook page, and other ideas for social media. Even if you don't want to join the committee, please can you get in touch if you can help us?

And finally the Hanami Festival at Brogdale in April, either the 18th or 19th. If you are interested I would like to arrange an additional trip? 15 people required It is a one day celebration where you will be able to enjoy traditional Japanese entertainment whilst you picnic under the beauty of the ornamental cherry blossom! Please get in touch with me to register your interest. Sue Strange 07985 739788
