News

As part of the village Jubilee celebrations there will be an art exhibition in the Village Hall on Friday 3rd July, and the Garden Society have been asked if they would like to do a floral display in the hall.  If anyone is interested in doing an individual arrangement or to help with a bigger one, please ring Jackie on 10263 720866 for details.

The Village Hall was filled with the delicate perfume of a host of golden daffodils on Saturday 9th April as we had our Spring Show.  A big thank you as always to Derek for organising it, for the team of helpers getting it all set up and cleared away afterwards and also to the judges.

It was great to  see some new names amongst the exhibitors this time,  Well done to everyone who put in exhibits and many congratulations to the winners of the individual sections.  These were:-

  • Section 1 (Flowers) David Garnham
  • Section 2 (vegetables) Alec Adams
  • Section 3 (floral arrangements) Kate Pym
  • Section 3 Junior Bella Pym
  • Section 4 (cookery) Colin Doherty
  • Section 4 Junior Grace Mountain
  • Section 5 (handicrafts) Liz Carr
  • Section 5 Junior Grace Mountain

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 3rd May in the Methodist Church at 7.30pm  Simon Harrup from Natural Surroundings will be giving us a talk on ‘Wild orchids’.  Then, same time and place on Tuesday 7th June we will be seeking the answer to the question ‘Friend or Foe?’

Do you have a shady corner that you are not sure what will thrive?  Here are a few ideas. We can all remember back to a childhood when we saw snowdrop, bluebell and winter aconite growing in abundance in the shade of the woodlands, but what else can we grow in shade?  Aquilegia, foxgloves, campanula, astilbe, hosta, hellebore, stinking iris, Solomon’s seal and cyclamen coum to name just a few.  Beetroot, carrots, radishes and all brassica are all shade tolerant too, as are leeks and broad beans.

To lighten up the area try to remember to put in plants that have white, or pastel-coloured flowers.  They will show up even on the gloomiest of days and thus, brighten the area.

Trunch Garden Society have a warm welcome for new members and for visitors to our meetings.  We charge £2 on the door for members and £3 for visitors.  Feel free to contact Jackie by phone 01263 720866 or by email karatekween@hotmail.com if you would like more information on any of our activities.
