Your Local Village Gardening Club

Our Annual Show in July proved very successful with a large number of entries in all the different sections. We had a large number of new exhibitors, including entrants from Didcot and Harwell. Our Show is open to anyone and is not restricted to Blewbury and Upton. We managed to win the Inter-Society Competition by one point! Thank you once again to everyone who entered and a special thanks to the Blewbury Play Group who always provide a lovely entry from the children.

I am on holiday and writing this from Thurso in Scotland (not far from John O’Groats!), so I’m not sure how everyone got on with the trip to Kew Gardens on the 12th August – I hope those who went enjoyed themselves.

Our Programme continues:

Sunday 22nd October (1pm – 3pm) – Cake and Plant Sale at Red Lion, Blewbury together with Sustainable Blewbury’s apple pressing day.

Wednesday 1st November (7pm onwards) – Annual General Meeting at the Vale Room, Blewbury Village Hall (includes wine and nibbles).

Saturday 2nd December (7pm – ?) – VPA Annual Social at Upton Village Hall. This year will be a “London Evening” with food, quizes, games and fun. More details next month.

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

DID YOU KNOW ? Although not recommended, did you know that carving a notch in a tree will remain the same distance from the ground as the tree grows? True fact! Happy Gardening Eileen
