The Hornton May Day event isn’t the only event taking place in the village next week.
There’s also the 3Hs Gardening Club plant sale – to which everyone is invited. It starts at 10.30am in the pavilion on Saturday week – May 7 – and be sure to get there early for the best bargains at rock bottom prices! The plants will be of top quality and bottom prices so if you have a chance to spread the word to other gardeners you know please do so.
There will be a large selection of bedding and vegetable plants available but the club say there is always room for more! So, if you have any excess in your garden or greenhouse looking for a good home, please bring them along to the pavilion on the Friday from 7pm when the sale is being set up. “This is the 3Hs main annual fundraiser – back after two years – so we look forward to seeing everyone there. As well as the plants, there will be tea or coffee and, of course, a raffle.”
You may also be interested in the talk being given at the club’s next meeting on Tuesday week – May 10. Club chair Mike Patching says: “Duncan Coombes will be giving his talk originally entitled ‘Colours and texture in the garden’. So spread the word and bring along any potential members that might enjoy the evening.”
Non members are welcome to come to 3Hs meetings. As well as the talk, there’s a horticultural bring’n’buy stall at each meeting. If you join the club, you get a discount card entitling you to 10 per cent off every time you visit Farnborough Nurseries.
There is also there is a visit to RHS Wisley Gardens on the 25th June and there are still seats available. Wisley is a stunning place to visit and is a ‘ bucket List must’ for all gardeners. Anyone, member or not of the 3H’s who might like to attend will be very welcome, please contact Malcolm Cross for details on 01295 670562 or Mike Patching on 01295 730039. The coach will pick and drop back at Hornton and Horley.
As part of our Platinum Jubilee celebrations we are aiming to make Horley even more beautiful with our Horley in Bloom competition.
This bank holiday weekend is an ideal time to buy your plants and start planting your tubs and baskets ready for judging on 4th June. Please remember to register at The Red Lion so that the judges will know who to visit.
There is something for everyone with 3 categories: 0-10 years | 11-16 | Adult.
Don't forget to take a look at Caroline's plant stall.
You are invited to join us at the following services at St Etheldreda:
Good Friday (15 April) – Stations of the Cross at 12 noon
Fourteen illustrations of events leading up to the crucifixion will be placed around the church and the congregation will visit each station, following the evocative story of Jesus’ journey to the cross and singing one verse of a hymn at each picture.
This will be followed by a simple lunch (soup and roll) in the Old School Hall at 12.30pm in return for a small donation.
Easter Day (17 April) – Easter Day Holy Communion Service at 10.30am
We look forward to welcoming you as we celebrate Easter. This will be a simple service with a short sermon and Holy Communion. It’s especially suitable for young families with the possibility of chocolate if the Easter Bunny arrives!
We hope you can join us for one or both of these events.
