RHS Show  at Chatsworth Park   7th – 11th June 2017

The RHS is promoting its new show, hosted by the Duke of Devonshire, at Chatsworth Park next year. The National Cottage Garden Society will have a stand to promote Cottage Gardening and encouraging new membership. We can also recruit for our local Society as well. I have been in touch with the National CGS and they would love some help to set up, look after the Stand (in the Societies tent) and provide flowering plants for the display. They will provide all the stand and presentation display. If you would like to be involved please contact me 01629 823402. Several people have already expressed a willingness to help but we won’t be involved unless we have enough helpers. It does need a commitment and I will explain further when I have details from the National CGS. This is an opportunity to be involved in something new and it should be a wonderful show.
