The Horticultural Society donates much of its profits to local charities and organisations. In 2016 we donated £350 to local village organisations. To date £2,625.00 has been awarded.
The Annual Horticultural Show proved to be a great success. We enjoyed lovely weather which attracted many visitors. To celebrate our 150th year, a new category was included for the village societies. The standard for the display was extremely high and the judges chose Macmillan Cancer Support as the winner. Pictures can been seen in the gallery. Special guests, Jean Singleton and Phil Sylvester presented the prizes. Thanks to all that attended.

Annual Outing 2018
The annual garden visit for the Society took 32 garden enthusiasts to Coton Manor Gardens in Northampton. We began the day with a coffee stop at Kilworth Hotel Theatre and were very impressed with the Grade II listed building. From there we moved on to Coton Manor Gardens and explored the various colourful borders and water features. The flamingos at the bottom of Goose Park sauntered in and out of the pond unaware of the cameras snapping. Coton has an extensive nursery where you can buy nearly all the plants you see in the gardens and a fabulous café, where we all enjoyed lunch. One of the highlight was the Seven Sisters pink rose that grew up the front of the house that had the most delightful aroma. Well worth a visit if you’re in Northamptonshire.
