Burton Overy Flower and Garden Club

The Club meets on the first Thursday of the month from March – November.

Meetings in March, April, October and December are held at 7.30 pm in the Village Hall.

During the summer months meetings take the form of visits to local gardens of interest.

Members of the Flower and Garden Club continue to provide flowers in St Andrew's Church on a weekly basis, as well as for festivals such as Easter and Harvest. They also help with decorations for the Christmas Tree Festival.

Visitors welcome at all meetings.

Annual subscription: £10.


Members of the Flower and Garden Club are looking forward to our first outing to White House Farm, Ingarsby, on Thursday 3 May.

Future visits are planned are to Mon Amie's new base in Kibworth, to Woodhouse Eaves, Kelmarsh Hall and the Wooden Owl in Clipston. A Members' Evening is planned for October, and our speaker at the meeting on 1st November will be garden designer Sue Blaxland, who was due at our March meeting, which had to be cancelled because of the snow and ice.

Flower Club members, under the guidance of the Christmas Tree Festival's Artistic Director, Judy Rollin, helped with the décor for the Festival and also decorated St Andrew's Church for Easter.

The Flower Arrangement section in the Village Show attracted a great deal of interest, and several people asked if the Club would arrange a flower arranging workshop. This took place in February, led by Judy, and was enjoyed by those who took part.They are keen to practise their newly acquired skills – so watch for increased entries in the Village Show (Saturday 1st September) and a very high standard.

Visitors are welcome to join our outings, or to attend events in the Village Hall. Contact Joan Stephens, 259 2210, joanscribble@yahoo.co.uk for programme details.
