Access to information on past events can be navigated to by scrolling down to the links at the bottom (in the dark area) of this and every other page. They can also be navigated to, from the appropriate year Programme page, and clicking the link in the “Info” column, appropriate to the meeting.

The January meeting, a talk entitled “Fruit and Veg. in Art from the Apple to the Cabbage and beyond”, featured Sarah Gathercole, who demonstrated using slides, how fruit and vegetables were often portrayed in paintings throughout the ages. Sarah drew the meetings attention to the various styles used. These paintings captured the culture of society of the day and were reflective of the time in which they were placed.

On February 21st the club will be hosting our popular Fun Quiz Night. This is a general knowledge quiz, which is not focused on gardening. Click here for more information

The club is starting a new monthly competition in March. Chris Kirk informed the meeting of the main details of how it would work. Members also brought examples of suitable exhibits. Click here to read about the competition and see some examples of suitable exhibits.  The entries do not have to be pretty and/or colourful: they could demonstrate various gardening techniques or indeed be misshapen products
