Winter Programme 2017/18

Summer Programme 2017

Our summer programme began on Tuesday 16th May. and finished with the annual Show in September.

As usual, the new Winter Season will start again at our October meeting on the third Tuesday, 17th October.

Seed Buying

Every year the Club organises a bulk-buying scheme for seed purchases and obtains a substantial discount on most prices.
Catalogues are provided for members who pass their individual orders, by the deadline - normally the end of November, to the scheme organiser, John Chapman.
The seeds etc. are then delivered to John and distributed to members early in the New Year.
The company involved, Fothergills of Suffolk, add a delivery charge to each individual order so for small quantities it may be worth members combining their orders.

For further details contact John Chapman: 01986 788955 - Email.
