Sweet Pea Competition Results & Pictures

The sweet pea competition took place last Saturday 15th July. There were 13 entrants with 41 vases of sweet peas across the categories. Despite the inclement and changeable weather varying between icy winds, storms and extreme heat this was far more than expected.

Unfortunately, many people had to drop out when their sweet peas were not ready on the  Show day.

The Show was attended by many members and guests and will be repeated next year. The art display attracted several pictures and showed off the many talents of members.

The show was followed by a Buffet and music and was enjoyed by all. There was even a little dancing…..

2017 Members Coach Tour – Kathy Brown’s Garden

2017 Members Coach Tour

This year 49 members enjoyed a visit to Kathy Brown’s Garden.  The highlight was the garden tours given by Kathy and her Husband Simon.  Their garden is beautiful with plants from around the world.  Everyone enjoyed afternoon tea with a slice of one of Kathy’s wonderful homemade cakes using flowers from her garden as an ingredient.

Before going to the Garden, a hearty Sunday Roast lunch was enjoyed in an Old Coaching Inn, where the owner/chef and his wife excelled with their wonderful food and presentation.

En route there was a stop at Olney Village monthly Sunday Farmer’s Market where our members enjoyed a stroll to stretch their legs and sampled the produce available and even make purchases.  The sun shone throughout the day which was an added bonus.
