Welcome to the Killearn Cottagers' Horticultural Society web pages in conjunction with Killearn.org.uk.
The Society was established in 1850 for "The encouragement of the art and practice of Gardening and Horticulture". Its affairs are managed by a President, a Chairman, a Secretary, a Treasurer and a committee, all of whom are elected annually at the General Meeting
Nowadays we have the same aim but achieve it in different ways. The Society holds a number of meetings throughout the year with invited speakers on horticultural subjects. A fund raising Whist Drive and a Gardeners' Market combined with a Coffee Morning are arranged annually. Our main event is still the Annual Flower Show held on the last Saturday in August. This now has an even wider spread in terms of exhibits and exhibitors - the former ranging from traditional flowers, fruit & vegetables, preserves and baking to art, photographic, various craftwork and floral displays. The 2013 Show will be the 147th and will be held on 31th August in the newly renovated Village Hall and the Church Hall.
Membership of the Society is open to all and is gained by purchase of the Show Schedule.
We will add show results and pictures in our 1st update after the show each year.
If you have any ideas for our web pages - contact us - with your suggestions.
