From Willingham Gardening Club

On Monday 6th June, the Willingham Gardening Club held its first in-person meeting since March. Encouragingly, attendance was high, with a mix of returning members and new faces. This meeting signified the official beginning of the next chapter for the Gardening Club, as a new club committee was successfully elected by attendees. As such, the new committee would like to take a moment to thank the previous committee for their unwavering dedication and enthusiasm in maintaining the spirit of the Gardening Club throughout the years.

Following the meeting formalities, attendees then spent time discussing the future direction of the Gardening Club. This provided a fantastic opportunity for everyone to voice their opinions on the upcoming activities the Gardening Club will undertake, ranging from talks from local experts to hands-on horticultural tutorials.

We hope you can join us for our next meeting on Monday 4th July at Willingham Social Club from 19:00, where we will be welcoming guest speaker Wendy Jones from The Bushel Box Farm Shop who will give a talk entitled ‘Nine decades of a family fruit farm’. As club membership fees are not yet being taken, there will be an ‘on-the-door’ fee of £3 per person.

The meeting concluded with a free plant, seed and produce swap, provided by many of the attendees who had been very generous and brought something to swap!
