All our committee offer their services for free but there are aspects of running a society that cost us such as hire of the hall, insurance, administration / printing of show schedules etc. as a member you will receive offers at garden centres, reduced rate society events such as supper parties and talks, free entry once per year to one of the 4 RHS gardens the closest being Wisley and Hyde Hall, also by supporting us you will ensure that the oldest society in Buxted can continue for the next generation of gardeners.
In 2019 we are running 3 main shows - Spring, Summer and Autumn, this is where members and non-members can enter their flowers and/or vegetables for showing in a friendly competition and prize money, certificates and trophies are presented to the winners. There is no obligation to enter any exhibits, you can come and admire the entries and enjoy a pleasant afternoon tea with delicious home made cakes. Full details can be found on our shows page.
In 2019 we have our AGM, a coffee morning / plant sale, an annual trip (this year to RHS Hyde Hall) an evening harvest supper party and talk (details TBC), most are open to members (at reduced rate) and non-members apart from the RHS trip which is a members only event but with free entry then it makes sense to join up and take advantage (coach travel charges apply). We are also holding a Wreath Making workshop & Christmas Tea. Full details can be found on our shows page.
