Coffee Morning Success
A new season of events started in February with our Coffee Morning. This year we included a table top sale where local businesses were invited to attend and sell their products. The event was very well received and visitor numbers were up. The new style Coffee Morning will be here to stay and hopefully we can encourage more sellers to attend next year.
Time to get Quizzical
Our next event on April 6th was the “Quiz with a Difference.” 12 teams took part and the evening went very well, with the winning team being the staff at St James’s Surgery. We are hoping to have another quiz in November and then make this an annual event. Please look out for the date, it is open to everyone and there will be questions to suit all ages and interests.
‘Diamond Spring Show’ Celebrations!
The Spring Show was a special celebratory 60th ‘Diamond’ show which was held on the 13th of April at River Village Hall. Entries were up 50% on last year and included entries from the local Brownies and Rainbow clubs who produced some lovely Easter bonnets and pasta pictures. River School also produced a fine display as usual and we also received many photographic entries from Astor College. We would like to thank all the exhibitors for the entries that helped to make the show bigger and better than last year. Being a special year, bunting and balloons added to the Fabric of the hall and with all the extra visitors that attended this year the afternoon was filled with the sound of people chatting and generally having a great time.
A Message from the Chairman
We would like to remind you that although we are a gardening club we embrace a lot of other non gardening categories, many of which are open to everyone. Please feel free to come along and try out some of the different classes such as cookery, floral art or photography. We would also like to see more children come along and any other clubs that wish to promote themselves or just take part. Our next show is Saturday 6th of July for more information about what’s an offer please visit our website at www.rivergardeners.com online we look forward to seeing you there!
