Trunch Garden Society Report November 2023

On Tuesday November 7th  the very popular Bill Drayton will be our speaker giving a presentation entitled ‘Wings Over the Marsh’.  The programme will start at 7.30pm in the Methodist Church so please be there early to take your seats.  This is the  last time we will have an open meeting this year as our Christmas Jolly is for members only and will be held in the Social Club on  Sunday 3rd  December.

If you are coming to the Christmas celebrations, which start at 7.30pm, please call Val Leeder on 01263 720967 to let her know what food you will be bringing to share, and if you’re not sure what to bring she can let you know what is needed.  Last year the weather caused us to call it off so hopefully it will be kind to us this year!

Weather permitting again, we will be having our usual fun quiz in the Social Club at 7.30 on Sunday 7th January.  Everyone and  anyone are welcome to come and join us, it’s always a very fun night.  Just the thing to lift the spirits if things have gone a bit flat after the excitement of Christmas and New Year celebrations.

Now for some jobs for November gardeners (yes, there’s still loads to do!)
