-Your Local Village Gardening Club
Well, it’s almost the end of another year!! The VPA Committee was disappointed that no-one attended our Annual General Meeting on the 1st November. The Members of the Committee conducted the business and all agreed to continue to run the VPA for another year. However, we do need the support of the Blewbury and Upton villagers – remember as residents you are automatically members of the VPA and there is no subscription!
Tickets are still available for our ANNUAL SOCIAL which takes place on SATURDAY 2ND DECEMBER (7PM – 10pm) at UPTON VILLAGE HALL. Delicious home made food (dietary requirements catered for), quizzes, games and fun. We have some special entertainment!! Tickets have been held at last year’s price of £9 per person. Contact Karen at Blewbury Post Office or ring Margaret Maytham in Upton on 01235 850126 or contact Eileen on 01235 510095.
Our full programme for 2018 will be circulated in the Blewbury Bulletin and in the Upton News (online) but in the meantime, please pop the following dates in your 2018 diary.

And finally, DID YOU KNOW? George Bernard Shaw wrote: “Be like the sun and meadow, which are not in the least concerned about the coming winter.” Happy Gardening Eileen
