 Your Local Village Gardening Club

It’s reminder time for everyone – our ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING takes place on WEDNESDAY 1ST NOVEMBER in the VALE ROOM at BLEWBURY VILLAGE HALL. It commences at 7.00pm for 7.30pm which gives you time to have a complimentary glass of wine and some nibbles. Look forward to seeing you there.

Tickets are now available for our ANNUAL SOCIAL which takes place on SATURDAY 2ND DECEMBER (7PM – 10pm) at UPTON VILLAGE HALL. This year will be “A London Evening” with delicious home made food (those with special dietary requirements will be catered for), quizzes, games and lots of fun and we have some very special entertainment!! Tickets have been held at last year’s price of £9 per person. Tickets are available from Karen at Blewbury Post Office or ring Margaret Maytham in Upton on 01235 850126 or contact Eileen on 01235 510095.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the above events.

We are in the process of planning our programme of events and visits for 2018 and this will be available soon. We are planning a visit to West Green House Gardens in Hartley Witney and a trip to Wisley – the details will be announced in the new year. Our Annual Summer Show will take place in July and we are re-arranging the classes for the Children’s Section to try and encourage more of them to take part. Full details will be available at the beginning of 2018.

DID YOU KNOW ? Thrushes love the berries of the rowan tree and distribute the seeds in their droppings. The rowan used to be carried on ships to ward off storms and was also planted on graves to stop the dead returning to haunt the living!! Happy Gardening Eileen
