The cost is £11 per person, including drinks and nibbles afterwards. Please email the club for details about how to book, if you are not already on our mailing list.

An Evening Visit, Thursday 21st July

We are revisiting an old favourite – Whitcombe House, in Overbury. Start time is 6.30, and the cost, including refreshments, is £8 per person. Please email the club for details about how to book, if you are not already on our mailing list.

The Annual Flower and Produce Show, Saturday 27th August

Covid led us to cancel the last two Flower and Produce Shows, and we had every intention of returning this year. You can, however, imagine the amount of planning and preparation involved, together with the physical work involved on the setup and Show day itself. Sadly, the Committee has too few physically able members to meet these requirements this year. We therefore have no choice other than to cancel the Show for 2022. Should you wish to help us in the future, please email the Club. We are saddened by this situation, and wish to reassure you that our planned evening talks and outings are definitely set to continue.

Thank you for your understanding.

Here is a rundown of the last show’s classes, should you wish for a taste of what we did.
