UPDATE 2th May 2020
We are sorry to inform you that due to current restrictions the Timsbury Gardening Club has had to cancel the Annual Flower Show. The Gardening Club committee regrets this decision but feel that due to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus they cannot commit to the organisation involved, which under normal circumstances would have been well under way now. We would like to thank all our Sponsors who contributed to the 2019 Show and hope you will support us again in 2021.
Next year 2021, is the club’s 60th Anniversary and we hope to incorporate this into the Annual Show which will be held on the 21st August . We would be very grateful if all Cup Winners could please return the cups in time for the 2021 Show.
A decision on the Craft Fair, which is due to be staged on October 25th 2020, will be made later in the year when we have more of an idea how group gatherings will be managed.
The Spring Bulb Show is due to be held on April 10th 2021and all things being equal will take place on that date. For Gardening Club members, Keith Pursey will have the bulbs for Class 1 on sale later in the year and will arrange delivery. There will be 5 Bulbs per bag at a cost of £3.00 per bag so members can place an order with Keith on 01761 402640 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Unfortunately for members all garden visits and monthly meetings are cancelled until early in the New Year as our Programme Secretary is unable to get any commitment from Speakers for the foreseeable future. Any alteration to this will be published on Timsbury Rocks, on the village web site and in emails sent to members.
The Gardening Club sends Best Wishes to all members and their families, sponsors, exhibitors and villagers Stay Safe and we look forward to seeing you all in 2021.
Graham Nicholls – President, Timsbury Gardening Society
Timsbury Gardening Club was established as Timsbury Horticultural Society in 1961 to organise and finance the Annual Timsbury Flower Show. In 2019 it was renamed the Timsbury Gardening Club to reflect the emphasis on gardening rather than horticulture.
Currently we organise gardening talks from September to May, 2 annual shows in April and August, where adults and children can enter various classes to win prizes, and a BBQ in July. Visitors are welcome to come along to any of the talks. If you want some advice or help identifying a plant our members have a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Subscriptions £8.50 per year (due 1st September), which covers talks and tea/coffee and biscuits.
