Garden Club

Our Summer Garden Party was held on 24th July, at Forge Bungalow, by kind permission of Doreen Neale.  The weather was a little overcast, but this did not prevent members and friends enjoying a glass of wine and a delicious buffet supper in Doreen’s very pretty cottage garden.

Before the party began, 9 entrants in the Children’s Competition huffed and puffed their way to Gilkes Lane, bringing their potatoes via various means of transport, for the ‘weighing in’.  After much scrabbling about in mounds of ‘compost’, Lucy Mercer emerged as the winner, with her sister Alice coming a close 2nd.  Prizes were awarded to Lucy and Alice and a small gift presented to each of the other gallant entrants.

The adult competition ‘A display in a container’, was judged on Saturday 19th July by members of the Ettington Garden Club.  Congratulations to the winner Myrtle Knight, and Janet Gardner who came second.

The next meeting will be in the Village Hall , on Thursday 28th September at 7:30pm, when there will be a demonstration of ‘Winter Hanging Baskets, by Mr R Walker, from Fosseway Nurseries.
