May 7th, Kew Market Stall, 10am - 2pm
Taking part in the Kew Village Market that takes place on the first Sunday of the month in Kew Station Parade. Come along and find out about the Kew Horticultural Society and what we get up to. If you are already a member – come along and tell local residents why you are a member and what we get up to. If you are not a member – now is your chance to find out all about us and how to get involved in our activities.
June 9th, Summer Party and Plant Stall, time TBC
How better to celebrate the time of tulips and fresh growth than by having a bit of a get together. A chance for new and not so new members to meet, sup a few drinks and to talk about what you are all up to enjoying horticulturally. There will also be a plant stall so we can all do a bit of swopping.
18th-22nd June, The 2017 KHS Summer Coach Trip to Norfolk and Suffolk
Norfolk and Suffolk here we come! There are still a few places but you need to book soon. The itinerary and booking forms are below. We have lots of beautiful gardens and houses to visit - and a wine tasting! The first thing you will see is that there are two quoted prices, and this is how it works. Initially, after the deposit is paid, the higher price will be quoted on the confirmation of your place on the trip. Brightwater will keep us informed about numbers as we draw near to the date for paying the balance. Should we reach the magic 30 bookings then Brightwater will send out new confirmations with the lower price. Even if there are last minute bookings refunds can be made after the balance payment has been made.
Send Brightwater your deposit! If you wish to bring a friend who is not a member all they have to do is sign up by sending £5 to our Membership Secretary at 58 Bushwood Road, TW9 3BQ.
Saturday 26th August, The Flower and Produce Show.
Our 73rd Annual Flower and Produce Show will be held this year on Bank Holiday Saturday 26th August, on Kew Green.
As usual, the centrepiece of this traditional Show will be the Marquee with its varied display of fruit, flowers and produce from local allotments and gardens, all competing for the many cups and prizes available, including special classes for children. There will also be a variety of stalls around the Green, including a plant stall, a Tea Tent and a Barbecue, with a lively jazz band to entertain us throughout the afternoon. We all hope for good weather on the day, and for another happy community event.
