ABOUT  US


                  We thought the Society was formed in about 1936 but this is wrong

   and has been proved. As our late Vice President Mrs Murial Elms (who  we are

   sorry to say passed away this year aged 100) Put the record  straight when we

   were told her father joined the society in 1927.

                In those days the membership fee was 1s. (one shilling) in today’s

   money that was 5p. and we only charge £5.00 per year now so the  subscription

   has not gone up much when you consider today’s value  with the old cost.

             You must also remember that we have made tremendous strides  forward

    by expanding the society with monthly evening meetings, a store for members

    to buy their gardening requirements, outings to  different and interesting places

    and plant sales.

             There has always been an Annual Show and looking back through  the     memorabilia we have, in the mid 1940’s they had four sections  in the show     (Vegetables, Fruit, Flowers and Domestic).

            If you look in our show section you will see that this has more than  

     doubled and there are over one hundred and forty classes to choose  from.

            So you can see that  we are quite a good society and you are invited  to

    join, and become a member. Don’t let the olden day beings just  fold up help

    us to keep it going. Come along to an evening meeting,  just as a guest and if

    you enjoy it, which we are sure you will then  just become a member and

    participate in all the events.
