The members of Waveney Gardeners club came up trumps for the members Table show, an important event in the calendar of the club, but our first for 2 years so a real treat. There were over 30 entries ranging from several classes for flowers including some novel floral art of a flower arrangement in a shoe. A wide range of first class vegetable and fruit exhibits showing that our gardeners have not lost their touch. There was also a class for a Victoria sponge cake and a photography class of a photo of a spider! While the judging was taking place we had a very entertaining talk from Peter Ransome on wildlife in his garden. Following this the trophies were presented to the worthy winners. A lovely evening and so good to be back.
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.
