Hello Everyone

Hoping you are all enjoying the lovely summer sunshine - although the downside always is the need to water the gardens/pots! I have used several of our storage water containers already, but the flowers have benefitted from the water and weekly feed so it has been worth the hard work

Just a brief reminder that the Summer Flower show and Fayre will soon be upon us on the 10h August on the Crowhurst Recreation ground

Please take a look at the schedule on line from our website - but as always - please ask and we will get a paper copy to you direct if you would prefer one

We always love to see entries flowing in as it makes all the work worth while, and means we will have a really lovely show for visitors to enjoy

We will be having a plant stall outside the "Big Top" as usual- run by Sue and Dave Bastin with kind help from Margaret too For this we would welcome any plants - indoor and out and any related gardening items which we could sell -. we would appreciate these being dropped off at the marquee the morning of the show ; but if you need collection please contact Alan to arrange for them to be transported

Any unusual plants may we ask that you could please mark them as lots of people like them identified and often e do not know ourselves!

The theme of this show/Fayre is " Come to the Circus" and a few people will be dressing up so lets have some fun and a really happy afternoon

Any questions call 07870525441

Thank you all so much for your supports We appreciate that very much !

Kind Regards

See you there we hope

Hello again one and all

I can hardly believe that I am sadly having to inform you all again so soon about another sudden loss of one of our members/supporters

Alan and I attended the beautiful funeral of Jenny Carter today held at St Mary's Church Battle- where we were all advised by the minister that Jimmy - Jenny's husband: and also an amazing supporter of our society- died very suddenly at home with his family present yesterday on the day before his wife's funeral !( I was stunned and really cannot take all this in - such great losses for me personally and for their dear family and friends and our society) A HUGE loss- such a kind and loving couple who I have known all my life Their lovely daughter Nicola always arranged for her children to enter the children's classes at the flower show and Meg won several awards which would be so welcomed this year if they are able to continue

Rest in Peace Jimmy and Jenny and THANK YOU from myself and Alan and the society for your kindness always and supports

You both will be so missed and our sincere condolences go out to Nicola Mark and families at this very sad time

Kind Regards

Hello Everyone

Sorry to let you all know but one of our very supportive and helpful members Mrs Jennifer Carter from Battle (and friend/neighbour of mine for many years) sadly died very suddenly at home recently out of the blue

Her funeral will be held on the 24th of June at St Mary's Church and all are welcome

Alan and I will be attending and I have sent her family a card and flowers from us

We send her loving husband and family our very sincere condolences

Our membership and supports are swiftly declining We have lost a lot of major supporters over recent years -we now so need more active, involved supportive members to help us

All Welcome to join the society - at Just £5 per year - just be in touch with Alan please 07870525441

Remember please that the schedules for the flower shows are now available on line and we so hope you will all try to enter our shows to support us - If you would prefer a paper copy just let us know and we will get that to you direct

Please Note -There will be a plant stall as usual held at the Summer show so any donations on the day to sell would be VERY WELCOME

Thank you

Hello Everyone

Just a brief note to say a large THANK YOU to all of you who donated plants to our stall at the village market today For those who helped and our customers

We were very happy with all the support we had and enjoyed the morning very much THANK YOU SO MUCH

The unsold plants were donated to the Greenhouse Restoration fund in Alexandra Park Hastings this year- who were "over the moon" with the donations and it was a great pleasure for Alan and I to take them down to them Such a great project to save an old greenhouse which used to house all the plants the nursery men grew to supply the Park

They are so worth a visit but are only open Saturday Mornings until 1pm

Kind Regards to you all once more

Next Event - the Summer Flower show and Fayre on 10/8/2019 at the rec! See you there! The theme this year being - "Come to the Circus"
