To all Friends and Members of the Gardening Club

Cancellation of meetings 2021

The committee has been discussing the current and likely future decisions that the government will make with regard to the coronavirus pandemic that has stopped all of us in our tracks since March, 2020.

Eventually it was reluctantly agreed that, in view of the uncertainty about regulations likely to be in force later in the year, and the lack of confidence many club members may feel about meeting in larger groups, there will be no face to face meetings of the club, nor the Annual Show, in 2021.  The committee is truly sorry to adopt this approach, but the health and safety of all members is our prime concern.

It is however anticipated that the Club will be able to meet face to face again in 2022.  To get the year off to a good start, the first meeting will be on Wednesday evening, 9th March 2022 in the Margaret Harker Hall (7:30 p.m.)  All are warmly invited to join us for what will be a very short Annual General Meeting, to be followed by light refreshments, a quiz and whatever other fun suggestions your committee can come up with.  The programme of speakers for the year will be confirmed as will the schedule for the Summer Show, to be held on Saturday, 16th July.

Members of the Club are automatically affiliate members of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and the Norfolk & Norwich Horticultural Society (NNHS).  We are informed about holidays, events and Zoom talks and can take part in certain classes of NNHS local shows.

If you have any queries about the Club, please don’t hesitate to contact one of the committee members – details are on the “Contact Us” tab.

We look forward to greeting members “old and new” in 2022.
