Summer show 2019

The Oulton Broad & Lowestoft Horticultural Society held their 108th Grand Flower and Vegetable show

The Oulton Broad & Lowestoft Horticultural Society held their 108th Grand Flower and Vegetable show last weekend, with many exhibitors coming from all over Suffolk, an important date on their calendar hoping to win first prize and a cup for the best exhibit in their class.

One of the largest and most imposing of the exhibits were the Dahlias, simply out of this world in such a large variety of colours and shapes. The vegetables did not disappoint and were the peak of perfection, there were many other beautiful flowers from mixed flowers to perfect orchids, beautiful begonias and very strange looking succulents, and a variety of different pot plants.

Other classes included Floral art, wonderful handicrafts from some really talented people, photography and Domestic economy.

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.
