The wine flowed at the WHS Christmas Social!

Woodborough Horticultural Society

We had a very enjoyable time at our Christmas Social on 9th December and were entertained once more by Sullivan’s Swords. We had a marvellous spread of food provided by Inga and Marie. Thank you to you both and thanks to Alan who was in charge of the bar.

The year of 2020 is now upon us and as usual we have a good programme of events for the coming year. Members should all have received a membership/programme card but if by any chance you haven’t yet received one, come along to the January meeting or contact one of the committee members to obtain one. If you haven’t yet paid your subs, you have until 31st January 2020.

For our January event we have a pruning demonstration by Jeff Bates. Pruning is always a confusing subject but I am sure Jeff will soon put us right. We have the usual refreshments after the talk and of course there is a raffle. If anyone is interested in joining the Society, please come along.  Admission for guests is £2 but if you would like to join the Society, the annual cost is only £6.

The WHS Committee wish you all a Happy New Year!
