Woodborough Horticultural

We hope you have all had a lovely summer, enjoying your gardens, or perhaps visiting other gardens of inspiration!

At the time of writing, the annual Autumn Show is almost upon us, so here’s a quick reminder that it will take place in the Village Hall on Saturday, 2nd September (2.00pm - 4.00pm). The event is an open show, so you don’t have to be a Member to enter. We would love to see as many of you entering as possible – check the Schedule for the classes, but please ensure you arrive early in the morning (between 07.30am and 09.30am) to set everything up. Most of the Committee and volunteers will be available to help you, if you need it.

Children can take part in the Show, too, and every children’s entry wins a prize. All you need to do is bring it along to the Village Hall on the morning of the Show. A final reminder that the Photographic Class is on the theme of ‘Red’. Photo size 7”x 5” and not framed or mounted in any way. For more details, download the Schedule and entry form from HERE.

A quick note looking forward to our October meeting, scheduled to take place at 19.30pm in the Village Hall on Monday October 9th. Not only will the annual Leek and Onion Show take place, but we will also be welcoming Howard Drury who will be giving us some handy hints for “Gardening on clay soils”. We’re sure that many local gardeners will welcome his advice. Both Members and non-members are welcome to come and listen (£2 fee for non-members payable at the door) and, as usual, refreshments will be served afterwards.

The Crafty Chatters

A new craft group has been set up in Lowdham, meeting every Friday, 1.00pm till 4.30pm in the W.I. Hall, Lowdham.
Sessions cost £3 which includes tea/coffee and biscuits/cake. We would like crafters from all disciplines to come along and enjoy an afternoon chatting and crafting.
For those who sew we'll have a sewing machine or two and an ironing board, knitters bring your needles and crocheters bring your hooks, colourers bring a pencil sharpener and ruggers bring your frames.
It will be a great opportunity to share knowledge and pick up tips, plus you might get inspiration to try a new craft! Open to all ages and all crafters. Phone Jane Waite 07985293351 or 01159 664907 if you have any questions.
