BOSHAM CHIDHAM & DISTRICT HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY

October 2019

A wet and windy evening for our October meeting!   As a result my beautiful and perfect Compassion Rose flew across the parking area of the Village Hall and needless to say did not win first prize!  As winter approaches and the shrubs will no longer be flowering, they will be judged in the monthly competition by their berries!   Now is also the time to remind members that the subs for 2019/2020 are now due!  The programme is on our website and the printed version will be at the printers very soon and available at the Christmas Party.

We had a change of speaker at short notice and we were most grateful that Paul Patton came along instead.  Paul is a professional gardener, writer, speaker and broadcaster.  He specialises in plant care including pest, disease, weed control, lawn care etc.  In his talk to us he covered most of these topics and I am sure each one of us came away with a few useful tips from him!  When the weather improves we might be able to get out into the garden and work on them!

Next month is our AGM on the 14th November.   There will be wine and nibbles to greet you as you arrive and after the Agenda is completed Sonia Rasbery, the Horticultural Therapist at Tuppeny Barn, will speak to us about the Social Horticultural Therapy Sessions there each week.  These sessions are available for anyone suffering from physical disabilities, mild to moderate health problems or those who are feeling lonely or isolated. It is such a worthwhile project and one in which I myself volunteer.  

If you have any craft items maybe with Christmas in mind that you would like to bring along to our sales table, that would be wonderful.   As usual 20% of the selling price will be donated to the Society.

The Committee look forward to seeing you there!  7pm for 7.30 at the Village Hall.
