Annual inter society garden quiz 2018

The Society hosted the inter societies annual gardening quiz.

At their last meeting the Society hosted the inter societies annual Gardening quiz. The other societies taking part were Bradwell, Beccles, Gorleston, Halesworth and Oulton Broad & Lowestoft Society.

There was a very good turn out from all the areas coming along to support their society. There then followed a brain taxing evening of 10 rounds each of 10 questions, covering albeit loosely on some questions, all aspects of gardening. From fruit flowers and vegetables to Logos ( of seed companies) famous gardens and their counties and identification of seeds, including banana seeds.

The whole evening was very light hearted and great fun. There was also guess the weight of the marrow with a £20 prize and a huge raffle. Refreshments were provided, and what a huge spread it was. Competition was fierce and the results were very close but the quiz was won by a few points by our own Oulton Broad & Lowestoft Horticultural Society.

Next meeting 21st November is the AGM with presentation of awards.

It is with great sadness that one of our staunchest members have died. Our sympathies go to his family and partner Marion.

Allotment Sharing

One of our members has 2 large allotments at St Margaret Road site in Lowestoft which he shared with his late mother and her partner. He has tried to keep them going but is finding it difficult on his own. He finds gardening very therapeutic and having suffered from cancer himself he wondered if other members who have had similar experiences could join him on his allotments where they could share experiences and socialise together. Without a team to help him he will have to give up the allotments but feels it would be beneficial to all concerned to work together. For more information please complete the contact form.

Changes to membership fees

It has been agreed by both the members and the committee that the membership fee will increase to £10 per annum, In order to get good speakers we need to increase our income, speakers costs have also increased as have their travelling costs. The entrance fee will remain at £1.00 with first time guest free of charge.
