Lavant Horticultural Society, Chichester

Lavant Horticultuiral Society

Lavant Horticultural Society can trace its origins back some 60 years.

Today it is flourishing with about 150 members & a good level of active participation.

Its remit is to foster interest in, and knowledge of, plants, gardens and gardening, always in a very friendly and relaxed environment.

If you live in Lavant, Summersdale or one of the neighbouring areas,

why not become a member of Lavant Horticultural Society

The annual membership fee is £7 per person.

The monthly meetings are then free, so this remains very good value for money

(especially taking into account the complimentary glass of wine & finger buffet at the AGM)

Membership for juniors is free of charge

Annual General Meeting     8th

This year's AGM brought many changes to the committee: as well as our Chair,

two other long-serving committee members, Jill Christison and Eileen Morris, also stood down.

The new officers and committee of the Society for the next year were duly approved by the AGM. For full details, please see the Contacts page.

As soon as the business was completed, the social side of the evening took over, with members enjoying the complimentary glass of wine and really excellent finger buffet and the chance to catch up with friends.

Pauline Williams stood down after nine

years as Chair of the Society. She also

served 9 years as Show Secretary.

In recognition of her outstanding service,

she was presented with a camellia by

the new Chair, Michael Kingsford, on

behalf of the Society's members.

Annual Supper

14th February

Some 40 members had a very enjoyable evening. The quality & variety of the dishes that were brought was particularly good.

Whether the glass of wine helped us tackle

the challenging quizzes is debatable.
