WINTER UPDATE

TALKS

Early in January, we took the decision to postpone our January and February Talks until things have settled down again.  We hope to resume talks in March so the next one is currently planned for Thursday 24th March.

SPRING SHOW

On Sunday 10th April we hope to be holding our annual Spring Show (the schedule of classes will be available soon).  This event is held in Lowdham Village Hall where the scent of all those beautiful spring flowers greets you as you enter.  There will be refreshments served, children’s activities and both paintings and floral arrangements on display.  Admission is just £1.50 for adults with children free.   Please join us for an hour.

Visit to Floral Media

On Wednesday morning, we went on a lovely visit to Floral Media at Caunton. It stopped raining as we arrived and the sun shone so we were treated to a lovely rainbow too. 26 of us had a very informative and interesting walk around the gardens followed by coffee or tea with a selection of cakes. Well worth a visit for any group interested in gardening or flower arranging. Many thanks to Steve and Paula

LOWDHAM SUMMER FAYRE

Just a reminder, that although we haven’t got a Summer Show this year we are holding a smaller but hopefully popular event, Lowdham Summer Fayre.  The event will run from 1pm to 4pm on Bank Holiday Monday with free parking on Lowdham Playing fields from midday, after the car boot sale.  There will be over 25 stalls arranged around Main Street from the WI Hall at one end to Lowdham School at the other end – crafts, tombolas, children’s activities, cakes, plants, toys, books, gifts and charity stalls.  We will be serving cream teas on the grassed area behind the Village Hall and the afternoon will culminate with our usual duck race at 4pm.  Please bring along your members potatoes to be emptied out of the bucket and weighed on the car park at the front of the Village Hall.  Christine will also be there to renew your memberships (£10 yearly) as we have some speakers booked for our new membership year and hope to be able to start up trips and visits again. 

PLANT SALE

We still have plenty of plants left after another successful online plant sale so will be holding an actual plant sale this Saturday morning, 5th June, from 9am to midday in Lowdham Village Hall car park. Lots of good quality bedding plants, vegetables, herbs and perennials. Along side the plant sale there will be a charity bake sale for ‘Stand up to Cancer’. Please join us.
