Lowdham Horticultural Society would like to wish a Happy Christmas to all of our members and best wishes for 2019.
Counting down the days until Summer Show Day! Hope you are all busy getting your entries organised. If you have completed your entry forms feel free to pass them on to Janet or I before the day, then we can have your class cards prepared. If you are happy to complete your own please contact Janet 9669467 for your entry number and to collect some blank cards. Any filled out before the morning helps as it gets a bit manic at times and we struggle to write fast enough! Remember the schedule and entry forms can be downloaded on our website.
I have put together a rota for Show Day, but if any of you have an hour or two free and would not mind helping out on the gates, on a stall or with refreshments please let me know ASAP. We are setting up the marquee at 2pm on Sunday 26th August and help with this is always appreciated, so too is help at the end of the show on Monday, clearing up, when we have all had enough! If anyone has time to make home made cakes for the refreshments we would be most grateful.
I have put together what I hope you think will be an exciting programme of talks and visits for 2018/19 and remind you that that Show Day is the ideal time to renew your LHS membership, a bargain at only at £10 each. We have 3 planned coach trips for 2019: Dunham Massey in March to see their winter garden, reputedly one of the best in the country; Malvern Spring Show on Sunday 12th May and a return visit after 10 years to Trentham Gardens, Staffordshire on Sunday 22nd September.
After a very busy and successful first one, we are holding a follow up plant sale, this Saturday 2nd June, from 9am to 12am in the Village Hall Car Park. There will be vegetable plants, bedding plants, annuals and perennials available – all at a reasonable price. Donations of plants are always welcome!
