IMPORTANT NEWS 20th March

We are writing today to inform all members of Kilmington Gardening Club of the decisions made by the committee.
Our responsibility is to ensure the health and safety of all our members together with external visitors. For these reasons and following Government and expert advice, the committee have taken the decisions indicated below.

1) TALKS: All talks are cancelled until September.
2) VISITS: All visits are cancelled.
3) PLANT MARKET: The plants for this event have been ordered. Some alternative arrangements on purchase and collection are yet to be
decided. (Further information will be conveyed at a later date.)
4) VILLAGE SHOW: The event due to take place on 25th July has been cancelled.

We are sure you understand the reasoning behind our decisions. We sincerely hope that, as we emerge from this difficult time, we will reconnect by email and welcome members back to our events. Please also look at our Gardening Club website www.kvpa.co.uk. In the meantime, if you know a member who does not have an email address, could you please notify them of the above news?

Thank you very much for your ongoing support. Our sincere hope is that you and your loved ones keep safe and well in the weeks ahead.

With our warmest wishes,

Gill and the Kilmington Gardening Club Committee

Just a reminder that the annual subscription is now due.

As we emerge from ‘meteorological winter’ and the wettest February on record, not to mention fears over coronavirus, we are determinedly optimistic and look forward to spring and the gardening year ahead. We had a real treat on Valentine’s Day (14th February), when our guest speaker was Nick Bailey of Gardeners’ World fame, who gave a talk about ‘365 Days of Colour’ – just what we needed to lift the spirits on a wet and blustery evening.

A huge thank you to Nick for battling through the weather and train delays from London to give pleasure to an audience of around 100 people.

Talk of the Month

Cancelled

Good Gardening

Kilmington has fertile soil, soft Devon climate, and a long tradition of good gardening.

Since its foundation more than 60 years ago, the village ‘Produce Association’ has spread its influence far beyond carrots and cabbages, offering talks and demonstrations by experts who understand the needs of the novice with a window box as well as the gardener with an acre or two.

We hold a plant market, open our gardens, arrange visits and host a summer flower show as part of the Village Fayre, and are ready to share our enthusiasm for plants and gardens with everyone, old or young, resident or visitor.

 

Kilmington Kids’ Corner

Don’t forget that if you have any gardening stories or photos to share with us, we would love to hear from you!
