    The March meeting of the Gardening Club was the Spring Show, This was very well attended and attracted 81 entries over 13 categories, The quality of entries was exceptional, helped by a mild winter and warm spring which had helped the spring bulbs maximise their beauty. During the judging which was carried out by the Club President, Tiny Hadley, a fun quiz took place with much discussion and hilarity and sharing of information. The overall winner of this year's show was Barbara Bennett, who was presented with the Silver Plate. Five more new members joined the Club at this meeting, and the overall membership is at its highest for some years. We welcome all those interested in gardening to come along and enjoy our varied programme. The April meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, April 23, at 7.30pm in the Memorial Hall, When Roger Umpelby is giving a talk "To spray or not to spray" which should meet with some interesting interaction.

    For our April meeting we welcomed Pam Thomas, assisted by Wendy Perryman, from “Joyce Brooks Lingerie”, Pam set up the business in 2001 which is situated in Cheltenham high street. There was an array of lingerie on display and a few purchases were made. The evening was really more of a question and answer session, members were asked to give a letter of the alphabet then Pam would demonstrate the item beginning with that letter, each were given a numbered ticket which was drawn after the session, Carol was the lucky winner. To end the session, just for fun, we played pass the parcel which had many gifts kindly hidden in the layers of wrapping, the final one was a huge teddy bear which was won by Nancy, who is very kindly donating it to Charity. Pam and Wendy were thanked by Liz. read more
