Ewelme Horticultural Society
We are holding our AGM on Wednesday, 2 April, at 6:30 pm in the Village Hall. This will be followed at 7:30 pm by an illustrated talk on The Chilterns. This is to be given by Jon Scourse, author of “The Chilterns”, who will also bring some of his books with him to sell at a reduced price. It should be a very interesting evening and we would be delighted if you would join us. There will be refreshments available and the entrance is £3.00.
The annual Plant Sale will be on Saturday, 10 May, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm in the Village Hall. There will be bedding plants, perennials, vegetable plants and hanging baskets. We use the same nursery each year as they always produce such marvellous plants and the prices are very competitive. Refreshments will be available and we shall also have a raffle.
Our annual outing this year takes us to Blenheim Palace Flower Show on 21 June. This is the second year that Blenheim Palace has hosted a Flower Show. There will be Show Gardens, a Grand Floral Pavilion, Floral Arrangements and many different nurseries and stalls for you to shop at. When you have seen enough, your ticket will allow you to go into The Palace, The Formal Gardens and The Pleasure Gardens. The coach will leave Ewelme Village Hall at 9:30 am and arrive back at 5:00 pm. The cost will be £24 inclusive. Seats need to be booked through Cynthia Winfield on 01491 835687 or myself on 01491 834111.
Ewelme Village Show will be held on 25 August on the Recreation Ground. It will be hard to follow the success of last year when we were so lucky to welcome Mary Berry. We will be sending out schedules to all the houses in Ewelme early in July. Once our weather has improved and Spring arrives we can start gardening in preparation for some of the winning exhibits!!!
As usual there will be two photographic classes at the Village Show and entries can be either monochrome or colour – the choice is yours!
Division IV class 55 ‘Something old, something new’
class 56 ‘Water, water everywhere’
