We held our AGM on 8 November 2023, followed by wine and cheese. For 2024, we have agreed to keep all our charges unchanged (annual membership at £5/person, adult entry to the Spring and Summer shows at £2 (members and accompanied children free of charge), entry to lecture meetings £2 for members and £3 for non-members).
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday 13 December 2023, starting at 7.30pm in the URC Hall on Stockway North in Nailsea. It will be a talk on “The Spirit of Christmas” by Katherine Kear.
Our friends in the Allotments Association held their plant sale on Saturday 13 May. They raised £426.65 which together with £237.05 raised at last year’s plant sale they have given to 3 charities (decided by those who came to buy): Children’s Hospice South West (£245); Great Western Air Ambulance (£260); Holly Hedge Animal sanctuary (£160).
Nailsea & District Horticultural Society
The Society exists to encourage all aspects of gardening within Nailsea and the surrounding districts. It does this by organising flower shows, holding a series of monthly talks on gardening subjects and arranging occasional outings for members to gardens and other places of interest.
What We Do
A spring show is held on the first Saturday in April (1230pm on 6 April for 2024) and a summer show on the first Saturday in August (12.00 noon on 3 August for 2024). The shows are held in Nailsea School, Mizzymead Road, Nailsea.
The Society’s monthly gardening talks are held in the United Reformed Church Hall, Stockway North, Nailsea on the second Wednesday in each month starting at 7.30pm. These talks take place in each month except August, when there is a summer break, and November, when the Society holds its Annual General Meeting.
