Dates to note in your diary

Annual Plant Sale – Saturday 27th April

Annual Show – Saturday 20th July

The Barney, Fulmodeston and Thursford Food Production Club is one of the oldest gardening groups in the area, being formed during the ‘Dig for Victory’ and ‘Make Do and Mend’ days of the Second World War.  At that time the Club included a pig section and showed rabbits, activities since lapsed.


The Club has seen many changes over the years and the focus is now as much on “gardening” as “food production”. The Annual Plant Sale, held in May, is our major fund raiser, when we sell the excess plants cultivated by members and friends, and from this year, have invited a couple of local craft sellers to join us and sell their wares.


Our Annual Summer Horticultural and Craft Show held in July is the opportunity for our members to show their skills in growing vegetables and houseplants, arranging flowers and displaying their craft skills in categories such as baking, knitting, needlework, photography and painting.


Talks and visits to gardens and other associated sites are arranged during the year as suggested by members; a Seed Swap and Social is held at the beginning of the Year, and other events on an ad hoc basis.


And all this for an annual household membership of £10
