WELCOME TO FINDON VILLAGE
The community website for Findon in West Sussex

FINDON VILLAGE GARDENS ASSOCIATION

The Findon Village Gardens Association welcomes new members. We meet at 7:30pm on the last Friday in each month (except December) in the Village Hall. We normally have a guest speaker, with subjects ranging from horticulture to the history of canals; from trug making to natural history.         

We have an annual light-hearted quiz night, a Christmas Social evening and of course our two Flower shows, enabling members to grow and show prize blooms and vegetables, plus of course the cookery, photography and handicraft sections. During the year, visits to gardens and other places of interest are arranged, which make for a most enjoyable day or half day out. There is truly something for everyone. 

Annual membership is £5 with a £1 entry to the monthly meeting to include tea and biscuits. For any membership details please contact David Gear on the number below

NOTICES:

9th February 2019

Regrettably despite all his hard work Mike Solomons has had to cancel the proposed visit to Warners on the Isle of Wight in June, there simply wasn’t enough interest to make it viable and therefore Mike has withdrawn the booking.

On the other hand the trip to Savill Gardens is confirmed as we now have over ‘half’ a coach load.  The coach has been booked and this outing will be on Tuesday 9th July leaving the Village Hall at 9 am and back in time for tea! We visited this beautiful garden about two years ago and found it most enjoyable with lots to see and a good café and a very well stocked plant shop. The cost will not exceed £20 per person including coach, driver’s tip, raffle and entrance fee. If you’ve not already reserved your seat do please give Mike a ring on 01903 877 255 or email at mr.moustache@tiscali.co.uk .
