Flower bed

Westfield Horticultural Society are pleased that the flower bed they donated as a gift to the village is now complete.

Planting has been designed such that there should be colour all year round, and will be maintained by members of the Society.

EVENTS FOR 2018

Westfield Horticultural Society are exited about this year's planned events, and full details are available here:

WHS EVENTS LIST 2018

You should, by now, have received your Show Schedule for 2018, which lists all the details you need for our two shows, together with a full list of events.  If you haven't received your copy, please let me know and I will arrange this for you.  If you want to have a look at the Show Schedule, click here:  

WHS Show Schedule 2018

You will also notice a change in your membership card!  We hope this will give you all the contact details you might need, and also the list of events are shown inside the cover.

The first event for 2018, is our Valentine Quiz night on Saturday, 10th February, at the Parish Hall.  This is always a fun event, and includes a raffle and prizes, a hot supper and dessert, all in the price of only £6 per person.  A team can be any number up to a maximum of 8 people per table.  Please email or phone me asap to book you place, as space is limited.

Another event we're excited to announce is a guided tour of Alexendra Park, Hastings.  The Park was given the Green Flag aware in 2015, and still retains this status.  It also has one of the best collection of trees in Britain.  We will not only be given the history of some of the planting, but also information on the trees and plants themselves. The date has been planned for the third week in March, but has not been booked yet as the Park Ranger has suggested we wait until we know the weather forecast.  Please book your place asap via either email or a phone call, as numbers are limited.  You will be given as much notice as possible of the planned day and time.  

It's not too early to look ahead to April 2018, for our Spring Show on Saturday,14th April.  Why not have a look through all the categories and start planning now!  

Finally, you may have seen our Newsletter in December and we are now looking for your contributions for the next copy in March.  Please either email us, message us on Facebook, or use our Postbox in the New Inn, to tell us your news, suggestions, recipes, photos - anything you think would be of interest to other members.

If you have any queries at any time please contact me on: 552485    

Thank you for your support.
