Events and Competitions

All regular meetings and events are cancelled until further notice due to COVID 19 however we have expanded on-line competititions and are arranging small garden visits in members’ gardens.

The monthly photo competition is highly popular with members, and we love having your entries to print in the monthly Bulletin. Here are the rules:

1) Each month, choose just ONE photo per category

2) Email your entry AS AN ATTACHMENT by the third Tuesday of the month

3) Send it with your name to [email protected] and include the competition title in the subject line of your email

Points will be given to the top 10 entries and several photos will appear in the Bulletin for that month. At our first club meeting, whoever has the most points will receive a mystery prize. All competition entries will be displayed in the Gallery and the top three places will also be displayed on this page.

October photo competition subject is ‘Top of the Plots’ .

Closing date for October competition is Tuesday 21st September
