Newsletter, April 2022

Please note that with effect from March 2022, all talks and presentations will be held in St Swithuns Church unless otherwise stated. The cost of membership this year will be 2.00p. The first rise for over twenty years. This rise is necessary due to rising costs and is very much regretted. As an example, the routine cost of speakers is now over 100 plus traveling.

Wednesday 6 April 2022.  St Swithuns Church. AGM & Social Evening

Once again, we are trying to hold a belated social evening with an AGM. Surely, third time lucky! The programme starts at 7.30pm, with the AGM, followed by some games and cheese & wine to round off the evening. Members only.

Saturday 7 May 2022. Plant sale.

We hope to go ahead with the plant sale on Saturday 7 May, 10-12 noon. We currently have 5 tables booked. The committee would like to hear from anyone who would be interested in running a plant stall, contributing plants for sale or generally providing support for the event.

Sunday 8 May 2022. Coach outing to Malvern Spring Festival (formally show).
The cost will be 35.00p, (we can’t do it any cheaper!)  inclusive of coach and entry. (Places can be booked with the treasurer on 730961 or email to The coach will depart Manor Grove at 8am, calling at bus stops through the village. We still have plenty of seats. Estimated time of return 1800hrs. Due to ticketing issues we need to pay for tickets by 18 March.  Payments should now be made.

Virtually all membership cards 2022-2023 have now been delivered. If you are still waiting, contact John Maine or Brian Peedell.

As part of reducing costs, we are reducing the number of Show Schedules printed. If you are interested in showing please contact Alison Peedell. You can also click the links to find the Show Schedule and Entry Form online.
