Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The good news is that, finally, the lockdown is easing, and we hope that life will return to as near normal as possible in the not too distant future.

The less than good news for our Society is that, due to the very onerous conditions imposed on village halls by the Covid-19 social distancing, sanitising, etc., requirements, the committee has reluctantly decided to cancel the functions planned for July, August, September and October. However, I’m pleased to say that all of the speakers booked for 2020 have been rebooked for next year.

The arrangements and format for October’s AGM have still to be resolved, “virtual reality” wine and nibbles are under active consideration!

The Society meets at the Brabourne & Smeeth Village Hall on the last Friday of the month at 7:15 for 7:30pm; a guest speaker, coffee/tea and a friendly, informal setting for gardeners to learn from each other.  Everyone is welcome no matter how green their fingers.  The village hall is on the corner of Lees Road and Manor Pound Lane in Brabourne Lees - a wheelchair friendly venue with ample parking.  The Society arranges occasional day trips to some of the best gardens in the South East - in recent years we have visited RHS Wisley, Beth Chatto Gardens, Great Comp Garden, Hyde Hall, Hadlow Horticultural College, Downderry Lavender Nursery, Wakehurst to name a few.
