The Meeting on Thursday evening 14th April did go ahead.
It was a very sparse meeting in the Methodist Church Hall Craigmaire Road.
The Show Secretary Alison Valentini told us that the June show could go ahead and she was prepared to organise it ,BUT ONLY on the understanding that a number of members are ready to form a regular support group.
At the present time she is no longer prepared to take on the much more difficult and complicated work necessary to organise the much larger show in August
The Date for the show is
Rose and Sweet Pea 25 June
We must have a reliable group of members to assist in the set up and running of the shows. Some committee members are less physically able than they used to be and we definitely need extra "muscle" to help with the shows
The Horticultural Society is still here but without solid reliable support from members, it will not continue
Building a Stronger and Greener Community

We Meet in the Methodist Hall Craigmaire Road at 7:30 pm on the second Thursday in the month from March to June and September to November
The Sweet Pea and Rose Show
Saturday 22 June 2019
This was a great show . Why not plan to enter it next year The Roses and Sweet Peas are the focus of this show but there will also be a very good showing of vegetables and fruit.
There is also the Floral Art and Photography as usual.
Summer Show Saturday 17th August 2019
As every year there was an outstanding display of fruit and vegetables and a great turn-out of visitors again this year . This is our biggest and most popular show, but newcomers often are surprised how easy it is to win a prize
The Spring show was on Saturday 23rd March 2019
We had a very successful show. The many people we welcomed commented on what a good show had been put on by the Society
