EVENTS 2018‎ > ‎

Monthly Newsletter



Our final Club Meeting of 2018 is on Tuesday 11 December when, instead of a speaker and plant sale, we will have a Social Evening. There will be some games and maybe a small prize or two. Also, festive refreshments, a free raffle and fun quizzes. Look forward to a great relaxing social evening getting to know your fellow Club members and generally having a jolly good time.


Sue will be coming around again with the Tea/Coffee and Raffle Rotas for next year for you to sign up to. There are still a months free. The drinks and biscuits are provided by the Club so you just have to serve them and wash the mugs in the dishwasher.  Prizes for the raffle should be garden related and of a worthy value. Please don’t bring your unwanted Christmas presents unless they are garden orientated.



Bring your chequebook and/or extra cash to treat yourself. One cheque can cover all.


·                     Subscriptions for 2019 remain at £12 for the whole year. Always a bargain, you can pay at the December Club meeting and receive your programme of the wonderful events organised for 2019.


·                    The annual Club lunch is at a new venue, Clandon Regis Golf Club, West Clandon. Christmas will be well and truly over so beat the winter blues and treat yourself to a lovely lunch in convivial company on Sunday 20 January 2019. Sign up and pay at the December Club meeting.

·                     NT - Polesden Lacey at Christmas 30 November – 23 December. Decorated for the festive season, in the style of a glittering 1930’s party.

The sound of 1930s tunes drift through the air. Step back in time and experience all the glamour of a high society Christmas party. Gift shop and a lively café serving festive food.



Please save your postage stamps for the charity Canine Partners. Leave a small border (maximum half an inch) around the stamp. Foreign and British stamps. Give your stamps to Sue Jane who will pass them onto the charity. Charities can raise several thousand much needed pounds from stamps, so it is well worth saving them. Sue will also collect your used printer cartridges.
