HORTICULTURAL NEWS: Last Saturday 34 members of the Horticultural and Home Produce Club enjoyed the coach outing to Wisley Gardens. The weather was kind to us and the gardens were spectacular with their autumnal colours and lushness. The next club event is the annual gathering on Friday November 10. This will be the village hall and start at 7pm. We will spend a short time reporting on the events of the past year and the state of the club finances. Then during the tea break there will be a raffle in aid of the Royal British Legion. Any contributions for prizes will be gratefully received on the night. After that we are looking forward to an interesting presentation by Kevin Martin about the garden at Glyndebourne. Also during this evening you will be able to pay your subscription for the coming year and collect your schedule for next year shows so you can start to plan your exhibits early.
