Kilmington Village Show

Our marquee at the summer Village Show is always full of colourful flowers, vegetables and children’s exhibits, and the art and photography and home-made produce is displayed in the village hall – but not this year! However, our Autumn Show in the Village Hall on Saturday, 11th September will be just as colourful.

You are welcome to join us!

Halloween is behind us and the clocks have gone back and that can mean only one thing – the Gardening Club year is coming to an end. And what a strange year it has been! Our normal programme proved to be impossible during lockdown but we managed to hold a few socially-distanced talks in the last few months and we were also able to hold our Plant Market, albeit via on-line ordering and centrally-delivered plants.

A decision at our latest committee meeting on the 1st November was made to go ahead with our AGM on Friday, 12th November at 7.00pm (please note the earlier start time). We need to hold an AGM this year because we were unable to do so in 2020.

Following discussion with representatives from the Village Hall, there is still somewhat limited scope for talks and events. Our Chair, Gill Gibbs, feels that it is a great opportunity to offer all members the chance to attend a convivial, informal event, at which you can hear a brief resume of the last 20 months, together with our plans for 2022. We particularly look forward to welcoming new members who have joined in 2020 and 2021.

The meeting will be different to AGMs we have held in the past. This year we will be providing only drinks and nibbles, for which no payment is required. As it will be a seated event, we are asking members to pre-book, please.
 

What’s coming up in November

AGM at Kilmington Village Hall: Friday, 12th November at 7pm.

Good Gardening

Kilmington has fertile soil, soft Devon climate, and a long tradition of good gardening.

Since its foundation more than 60 years ago, the village ‘Produce Association’ has spread its influence far beyond carrots and cabbages, offering talks and demonstrations by experts who understand the needs of the novice with a window box as well as the gardener with an acre or two.

We hold a plant market, open our gardens, arrange visits and host a summer flower show as part of the Village Fayre, and are ready to share our enthusiasm for plants and gardens with everyone, old or young, resident or visitor.

 

Kilmington Kids’ Corner

This month there are ways to provide food for bees and other pollinating insects.
