KHS Events 2018

15 March - KHS AGM, St Winefride’s Church Hall, Leyborne Park

This event is for fully paid up members only. The doors open at 7.45 and meeting will start at 8.00, and it is hoped it will conclude at 9.00.

After the meeting Richard Ward will organise a plant identification quiz for 20 plants for which the prize will be a bottle of champagne (provided by the Committee). David Collison will set up an Organic Seeds stall as usual.

17 May - KHS Summer Party

As last year we are holding the Summer Party at the Priory Park Tennis Club. There will be a cash bar and canapes and other nibbles will be served. This is always a wonderful opportunity to meet other members in a highly attractive setting and to bring along your friends and neighbours. In addition, as always, there will be a plant stall. Further details will be sent to all members nearer the date.

20 May - KHS Trip to Snowdonia

This year’s trip is now fully booked and has a waiting list. 5 days are to be spent looking at gardens in Snowdonia with Tony Russell.

June 19th - A Coach Trip to Wisley, plus an optional Behind the Scenes tour

The gardens at Wisley will be looking their best at midsummer and as a society affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society, KHS is able to organize a visit with free entry. The cost of transport by coach is £15 per person.

As an optional extra we can arrange a 'Behind the Scenes tour' of Wisley Laboratory showing areas not accessible to the public. There is an extra charge of £15 a person for a 90 -minute tour to see their Science Library, Entomology, Pathology and Botany departments. A member of the team will explain the work they do to support the charitable remit of the RHS. Provided 10 of our group apply the visit can go ahead, but there is a maximum of 15 so apply early.

This coach trip is also open to friends and relations for an additional charge of £5 a person, which in effect means they join Kew Horticultural Society for 2019. We aim to have a relaxed day out with a departure time of 10 am. The journey should take well under an hour and we expect to get back to Kew by 5.30 pm. If you wish to come along please contact a member of the Committee (see the contacts button on this website).

24 August - KHS Summer Show.

We have been fortunate in securing St Anne’s Church Hall as last year for the summer show. While of course details will be available and widely circulated nearer the time put the date in your diary now.
