Sadly, we have had to make the decision to cancel this year’s Summer Show. With current guidance and social distancing rules, we cannot see any way that we could safely and successfully run the show. We will try and run some virtual activities and competitions instead, so please keep looking after those show potatoes!
It is a real shame as we know most people’s gardens have received more attention this year than ever before and if you are anything like us you are growing all sorts of vegetables and fruit too.
Hopefully we can return even bigger and better for our Summer Show in 2021.
In recent weeks, the death has occurred of one of our Life Members, Joan Jervis. Joan was an active member of Lowdham Horticultural Society for many years until she moved away from Lowdham to live in Lincolnshire. Renowned for her baking, she won the cup on several occasions. She also ran Lowdham Brownies and was lollipop lady at the crossing near the Magna Charta for many years.
She died peacefully in a nursing home aged 87.
This year we have had to run our annual plant sale online. We have contacted our members and processed their orders. We still have some bedding plants, vegetables and tomatoes that can be ordered by anyone who lives locally to Lowdham. If you would like an order form and details of how to place an order with us please contact us via the website.
Sadly, we have had to make the decision to cancel this year’s Spring Show.
