Heyford Gardening Club – February 2019


Our January meeting featured Dave Lantsbery who introduced us to the world of bees, a fascinating subject of which he could only scratch the surface in the time available!

Our next meeting will be on the 11th February when we will have our AGM, our annual art show and a speaker; Christine Lewis who will be talking about plants and dyes.

The classes for the Annual Art & Craft Show will be:

  • A photograph on the theme of “The Turn of the Year”
  • A piece of visual art in any medium
  • An item of craft work.

(please note that each exhibitor can only have one entry in each class)
