** Now taking memberships for 2020 - contact our Membership Secretary Hilary Potter from link below **
Due to the spread of Coronavirus and the risk to our members, the Committee has decided to cancel several meetings and shows. Please see 2020 Programme for more details.
We will review future meetings and shows as information from Public Health England develops and will advise our decision in due course.
We have also taken the decision to cancel the planned visit to Herstmonceaux Castle on Wednesday 8th July 2020.
Due to the popularity of our Society the committee has had to put a limit on the maximum number of members we can accommodate for our talks, shows and visits - we have not yet reached this limit for 2020; if interested please apply. We are a very friendly society and hold a full programme of talks and visits each year - click here to find out how to join
Each year, we decide as a Committee, which charities to support from proceeds taken at The Milford Village Fete held in June and at our AGM held in November. Below are details of the recent charitiable contributions we have made.
This year we supported Skillway. We have donated £450.90 from monies raised at the Milford Village Fete in June 2019 and the tombola at our AGM in November 2019.
We supported the local Food Bank at our AGM held in November 2018, our chosen charity for this year. We raised £156.50 on the night from a tombola.
We supported Mane Chance Sanctuary in Compton for our chosen charity at the Milford Village Fete held in June 2018. Thank you to everybody who kindly donated plants and other items to sell and to all those who helped on the day. It was a very successful day, the weather was lovely and the fete very busy. We collected £285.00 on the day and with an additional contribution of £40.00 previously allocated, so will be donating £325.00 to Mane Chance.
We supported Fountain Centre at St Lukes this year at our AGM held in November 2017, our chosen charity for this year. We raised £70.40 on the night from a tombola and an additional £10 after the AGM, therefore donataing £80.40 in total.
We supported Country Mice at the Milford Village Fete held in June 2017 and through the sale of plants and other garden items kindly donated by members, raising £170.63 which has been donated.
