NOV/DEC NOTES. Painswick Gardening Club:
Painswick Gardening Club: Festive Fun
What a brilliant month November is proving to be. I'm still gardening in shirtsleeves but more importantly, the Club has hosted 2 wonderful speakers within days of each other. At our normal monthly meeting Paul Hervey-Brookes delighted his audience with a fabulous talk about how everyone can achieve beautiful borders: his vast knowledge liberally peppered with wit made for a great evening.
"An Audience with James Alexander-Sinclair" was an absolutely superb afternoon. Despite several mysterious poster disappearances, the Club revelled in a fantastically successful event that attracted many other local gardening clubs, some wishing to share future events with us. James was a delight to listen to: the room was buzzing from the moment he spoke...!
The Club's had many enquiries already about the "Drop In" wreath making morning so by the time you read this, I confidently predict it will have been a great success! Creativity, laughter, coffee and mince pies - what a great way to kick off December.
Don't forget that the Quiz takes place on Wednesday 6th December (Church Rooms 7.30pm). As mentioned last month, tables to a maximum of 6 people please; visitors warmly welcomed (£4pp). Wine, nibbles, laughter and... a bit of a quiz!
The Club would like to invite Members to "Bring a Friend for Free" to the 10th January meeting. Fiona Warin's talk "Lost the Plot" promises to be an amusing account of allotments, 'Digging for Victory' and the impact of television gardens.
On behalf of the Club I'd like to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a garden-ingly good 2018!
