AUTUMN/WINTER  PROGRAMME    2018 - 2019

  

Welcome everyone to our Winter programme and a particular welcome to new members who may be joining us for the first time. Please make yourselves known at the meetings and ask as many questions as you like!

 

It’s been a very busy spring and summer beginning with our Annual Plant Sale at Arkwright’s Mill. A huge thank you to everyone who donated plants and time to help make this the most successful sale yet! Your efforts have provided some super garden visits, an excellent Weekend Away in Cumbria, Winter Speakers, a subsidised Coach Trip and Christmas Lunch. Thanks to everyone who helped make these events a success.

 

Ten members created a Stand at Chatsworth Show in June to promote the National Cottage Garden Society. Hard work but very enjoyable and an RHS Silver Medal for the second year running!

  

New Venue - The Bassett Rooms, Church Street, Ashover, S45 0AB

  

As you may know, we have been looking for a venue for our meetings for some time, and last winter we were fortunate to have the Arkwright Mill Warehouse at very short notice. It was felt that the arrangements were not really adequate, as going up and down stairs with hot drinks wasn’t really very safe!! We have now changed our venue to The Bassett Rooms.  This is a newly-converted church building which has everything we need. There are no stairs. Parking is on the road, opposite the Crispin pub and the Church. Further parking at the village hall 3 minutes’ walk away.
