Things To Do In July

  1. Give lawns a quick acting summer feed, especially if not given a spring feed.
  2. Deadhead bedding plants and repeat-flowering perennials to ensure continuous flowering.
  3. Water tubs and new plants if dry, but be water-wise.
  4. Clear algae, blanket weeds and debris from ponds and keep them topped up.

Another Successful Spring Show.

Once again the society held a successful Spring Show.  There was a good showing of daffodils and some stunning Alpines, while the Floral Art was up to its usual high standard.  Pat Grimes dominated the cookery classes and has a narrow lead in the preserve classes.  Pat Grimes and John Ross were the top money winners.  We now look forward to the second show of the year in August.

Christmas Lunch

Today the society held its annual Christmas lunch and trophy presentations.  The meal was excellent as always, the speeches entertaining and informative, the trophies well received and there were plenty of prizes in the raffle.  A big thank you to all involved in the organization of the event. A great way to start the festive period.

Don’t forget the Members Quiz Social at the Baptist Church Hall on Thursday 6th December.
