Milford Gardeners' Club celebrated its 20th anniversary last year and now in its 3rd decade is as active as it has ever been.
Sue Crabb, a long established member and since 2006 committee member, took over from Jen Spenser as Chair at the February AGM.
Jenny who began the Club in 1997 with Jan England and had led the Club for 17 of these years is now intending a move to Hordle and to have some free time to garden and travel.
Sue who lives in the village, will be a new and welcome face to take the Club forward.
There is an interesting programme for year, meeting at 7pm on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. In May there is a demo and talk about the perfume of plants and their essential oils, given by John Baker (of Hosta fame) & his scientist wife. In June we will be hearing about the Roses of Mottisfont Abbey Gardens.
The first event for the Club though is the annual Plant Fair on Saturday 19 May held on the Village Green. It starts at 8.30am to 1.30pm and should mostly be over before the Royal Wedding! Refreshments will be served by the Girl Guides and the proceeds of the day will go to local charities - Oakhaven Hospice and Milford Conservation Volunteers.
