Halstead & District Horticultural Society
Established in 1976, the Halstead & District Horticultural Society is an active village club with over 120 members. It is organised and run by a committee of twelve. The committee prepares and distributes to members an annual Programme of Events that includes:
shows – Spring, Summer and Autumn
A full day coach outing plus other outings using members’ transport
Regular talks on a wide range of gardening and related topics
Plant Sale in May
Annual Quiz in October
We also have around twenty Walled Garden Allotment plots and currently the waiting list is quite short.
The Society usually meets on the 4th Thursday of the month but check by telephoning the Chairman or Secretary first.
We also field a pub quiz team at The Rose & Crown, Halstead on the third Sunday evening of each month.
We are delighted to be linked to the Badgers Mount website and hope this will encourage new enquiries for membership, especially from the Badgers Mount area.
Annual subscriptions for 2018 are:
Any Age Adult: £8.00
Any Age Couple: £10.00
Under 18s: Free
Allotmenteers: £5 plus £20pa allotment fee
