Subscriptions will remain at £5 per household, if subscriptions are not paid on time and new members joining we cannot continue to have events, shows or Open Gardens.
To lose what is a very British Institution would be a shame for the village as the Society has been in existence since 1896 and without more village support it will close.
We are a very friendly club; your level of gardening experience is no bar to joining us. New faces and ideas are always welcome.
During the lock down restrictions many of you have spent more time in the garden and have found great satisfaction in growing veg and having some colourful flower borders.
It is an easy way to keep fit in the fresh air and help mental health.
Your efforts last year have not gone unnoticed by residents and visitors so keep up the good work.
Stay well and safe. Good Gardening.
