Social evening

This was our first meeting of the New Year guaranteed to put us in good spirits. There was a very good attendance with 40 people turning up for the fun.

The evening started with our usual quiz organised by Steve Cubitt. This time it was something different though a tad easier then some we have had in the past. 50 questions to answer naming all the plants trees etc that had their vowels missing, as we were sitting 6 to a table we had plenty of opportunity to confer and chat. Then to the main event, working in pairs, we had to try and throw bean bags through a hole in a specially designed board, as there were 2 boards things moved along very quickly. Gradually most of us were eliminated, leaving the victorious winners, Christine Crisp and her partner Kathy. A simple game but got everyone up and talking and lots of laughter.

During a short interval we partook from a huge spread donated by the Club, and tea or coffee. There were 2 tables who managed to answer all 50 quiz questions correctly.

We now look forward to another growing season and some interesting speakers for the New Year.

New Year, New Webmaster

We would like to say a big thank you to Sheila who has done an amazing job keeping our website up to date in the past eighteen months.  We wish her well as she moves on to pastures new.  From January this year Debbie will be taking on the role as Webmaster.  For website queries please get in touch with her through the contact form on our Get In Touch page.


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.
