Programme 2021-22

The coach outing to Exbury Gardens on 19 May went very well with excellent feedback.

 Thursday 5 August 2021 RHS Hyde Hall Flower Show, Chelmsford.

It is some years since we visited RHS Hyde Hall and this year we are visiting whilst the flower show is taking place. This is likely to be a very poplar event. Bookings can be made with the treasurer on 730961 or by email to The cost inclusive of coach and admission is 15.00p

The coach will depart at 0800hrs from Manor Grove, calling at bus stops through the village.

At the time of going to print, we do not know what, if any government restrictions will be in place regarding the pandemic. This includes what cap may be put on numbers permitted to travel.

Saturday 4 September 2021 Annual Show. Village Hall.

We are planning to run the annual show as normal, subject to the constraints of Government rules at the time. Members wishing to exhibit (and we hope lots of you will do) can use their unused schedule from last  year or failing that contact Alison Peedell on 730961 or by email to and request a show schedule. It would be very useful, if those intending to exhibit could notify me so we can make early preparations. Please note there is no August Chronicle so future communications will be via the Society’s data base.

Harrogate Autumn Flower Show: 16-20 September.

Following the cancellation of the Harrogate Summer Flower Show Holiday, we have secured an alternative option that being the North of England Autumn Flower show held between 17-19 September. A number of members have signed up for this trip but some already had alternative arrangements we have spare seats if you are interested. Telephone Brian Peedell on 730961 for further details.
