Wickhambrook Horticultural Society Reports


On Monday, 12th December, we held our Annual Quiz. Alex had prepared the questions for us this year and was our quiz-master. Two of our members shared the highest number of points, so the cup-winner had to be decided by an additional question, which was answered correctly by Daphne Bates, who was presented with the Quiz Cup. Daphne also chose a plant from the selection of prizes. The runner up was Joan Jones, followed by Simon Plumpton and Jean Coe. There were also plants as prizes for the three of them.

The ladies on the committee had brought along some mince pies, so the quiz was followed by a cup of tea/coffee and mince pies and biscuits.

This is our last meeting of 2005 and we begin the New Year with a talk by Sylvia Allworthy on “My Garden at Burrough Green”. The Society visited this garden during the summer and enjoyed a lovely evening there.

We are making an extra effort to attract new members to our Society during 2006. Annual membership of the Society is £3, with meetings costing £1 or £2 for non-members. Being a member of the Society entitles members to a 10% discount at Marlows, Bury St Edmunds on Thursday on production of their membership card. This sum includes tea/coffee and biscuits and our monthly talks are usually both interesting and informative. Our speakers are always willing to answer members’ questions and give advice.

As well as our monthly meetings, we have coach outings during the year and also evening visits to fairly local gardens which are not normally opened to the general public.

So why not make joining our Society one of your New Year Resolutions. Being a member gets you out of the house, and away from the telly. We always give our new members a warm welcome and would be very pleased to see you.
