Woodborough Horticultural Society

The first event in our autumn calendar is the Autumn Show which will be held at the Village Hall, Lingwood Lane on Saturday 7th September from 2pm to 4pm. Any items you would like to exhibit must be brought along to the hall no later than 9.30am on the day. Your support at this show would be much appreciated. Not only do we have a flower, fruit and vegetable sections but also have cookery, homecrafts and a children’s section. Joining us on the day will be John and Anne Forester from the RSPB and we are advised that, dare I say it, Christmas cards and calendars will be on sale. Hopefully there will be an opportunity to purchase daffodil and hyacinth bulbs in readiness for the Spring Show next year. As usual we will be serving refreshments and home-made cakes and of course there will be a raffle. The schedule and an entry form can be obtained on this page.

Our speaker on Monday, October 14th at 7.30pm. is Steve Lovell who will be presenting a talk entitled Bark, Berry and Leaf. – Texture in the Garden. Steve tells us to forget flowers and look what else nature provides in the plant kingdom. Autumn seems a very good time of year to look at this alternative view. Guests are welcome to come along and the charge is £2 per person which includes refreshments and biscuits.

The Committee have been busy planning next year’s calendar and we hope we will have a good selection of speakers and visits for you to enjoy. All will be revealed at our AGM in November. In the meantime, we look forward to seeing you at the Autumn Show.

To Make You Smile

The world has become so technologically sophisticated that this might be something in the future for our grandchildren??

Dearest Dad,
I am coming home to get married soon, so get your cheque book out. I’m in love with a boy who is far away from me.

As you know, I am presently living in Australia .. and he lives in Scotland.

We met on a dating website, became friends on Facebook, had long chats on Whatsapp. He proposed to me on Skype, and now we’ve had two months of a relationship through Viber.

My beloved and favourite Dad, I need your blessing, good wishes, and a really big wedding.

Lots of love and thanks.
Your favourite daughter, Lilly


My Dearest Lilly,

Wow! Really? Cool!

I suggest you two get married on Twitter, have a honeymoon on Tango, buy your kids on Amazon, and pay for it all through PayPal.
And when you get fed up with this new husband, sell him on eBay!

Love, Your Dad
