History

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

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 152nd Show will be held on Saturday 25th August 2018 in the Village Hall and the Church Hall.

Purchase of the Show Schedule entitles all members of a household to enter exhibits in the annual show.
