Our membership of the Royal Horticultural Society entitles us to one free group visit a year to one of their gardens. This year we are organising a visit to RHS Wisley, Surrey.
Wisley is the historic home of the Royal Horticultural Society and houses one of the largest plant collections in the world. They have a series of gardens including a showcase vegetable garden, as well as The Glasshouse and a cafe/restaurant.
We need to enter as a group, but once inside can split up into smaller groups.
We will organise car sharing for the journey – if you have a car and can take passengers please let the committee know. Similarly, if you would like to go and need a lift, let the committee know.
We are very lucky to have Demi-Chef running children’s cookery classes at Dorset Road Allotments over the Easter holidays. The classes last 3 hours – 1.30pm to 4.30pm and the participants will be taught how to make a savoury and a sweet dish by a qualified cookery teacher.
I’m looking forward to our Annual Open Day next week. As well as being able to tour our site, visit the wildlife garden there will be our wide range of regular stalls and events such as the Dog agility show, Bee demonstration, bouncy castle, Morris and Clog dancing, craft stalls, plant sales, Bodging demonstration, candle rolling, raffle and home made cakes. This year we’re also pleased to be having the Bromley Woodcraft Folk along to do woodcraft and cookery demonstrations (find out more about them at Bromley woodcraft folk).
The Open Day is on Sunday 19th May at 11am – 3pm. It’s free entry and there’s something for everyone. Hope to see you there!
