We have 90 members, about half and half Sutton and Huby and have a good turnout at meetings so there’s bound to be somebody there you know. The meetings alternate between the The Grey Village Hall, Sutton-on-the-Forest and the Huby Chapel, usually on the fourth Wednesday of the months September-April at 7:45pm leaving the summer for hands on gardening. Many of the speakers bring plants for sale and we benefit from inside information on all aspects of plant care. Refreshments are served after the talks. Watch out for the posters in Sutton (Church, Village Hall, Chestnut trees and central telephone pole) and Huby (Village Hall notice board, outside the shop and the Chapel).
