Headley Horticultural Society

Writing in the middle of a heatwave it seems impossible that Autumn is just around the corner but, as far as Society events are concerned, the summer is almost over. After a successful Summer Show at the beginning of July (although a few more visitors would have been welcome as there was plenty of cake left over this time - at the Spring Show it ran out!) and another successful garden visit to Denman's Garden at Fontwell, we are now looking forward to the Autumn Show on Saturday 3rd September and then we begin the programme of evening talks.

The Autumn Show is usually the largest of the year, but it may be that with all the dry weather it will be a struggle to fill up the show benches. Hopefully, members will have a good look at the schedule and make a real effort to produce something to exhibit. The Domestic and the Flower Arranging Classes are open to everyone so perhaps we can boost the entries there and find some new talent to take way the prizes.

On Saturday 3rd September the Autumn Show will be held when there will be a chance to see a vast array of fruit and vegetables grown by our members. Do have a look at the schedule for all the classes and hopefully there will be something that you too can exhibit, and maybe win a prize.

The first evening lecture will be on Thursday 15th September when Belinda Allen will be talking about Herbs and their uses; Culinary and Medicinal. As usual meetings start at 8.00pm at Headley Village Hall and everyone is welcome.
