Do you enjoy gardening?

The Society holds two shows a year, three informal evening meetings and an annual quiz as well as producing four annual newsletters and a schedule that defines the classes of entries for the summer and autumn shows.

Untangling our Long, Local History – Can You Help?
Cheam & Cuddington Horticultual Society has a long and prestigious history and has always maintained close ties with the local community. We are in the process of putting together as much information as possible about our history. Members old and new, and their families, have shared awards, trophies, photos, memories and memorabilia from the Society. We would certainly appreciate it if you or your family could help us.
We are just getting started, but below is some information and also a bit lifted from May’s newsletter (follow the link under “A Slice of Society History" or look on the back page of this month's newsletter). This contribution was written by Richard Bailey, who is editor of our newsletter, a member of our committee as well as the Royal Horticultural Society's Fruit, Vegetable and Herb Committee. Richard has also been a judge at the Chelsea Flower Show. However,although Richard starts his account in the mid-1970s, we have information and photos from well before that.
