Wednesday 16th January Devoran Gardening Club Devoran Village Hall 7.30pm for 7.45pm
We begin the new year and hopefully will be providing members with interesting talks and discussions on all gardening matters. We begin our season on January 16 when we welcome back one of our first speakers, Liam Shoesmith, deputy parks manager for Truro City Council and a well known gardening broadcaster on local radio and contributor to local newspapers.
Truro City council’s parks and gardens together with other areas is an award winning authority and the first part of Liam’s talk will appropriately be called Blooming Truro to be followed by Blooming Wildlife which will be of particular interest to all of us who want to encourage birds and bees and other wildlife to our gardens.
“My interest in horticulture started at an early age, as my father was the head gardener at Truro Cathedral School and I use to go with him to work at the weekends or during the holidays. He introduced me to how great it was to sow a seed and watch it grow into something wonderful, as well as all the nature around us in the garden i.e butterflies, birds and bees,” said Liam.
Please try and attend this meeting as it is only with the support of members we can continue enjoying such prestigious speakers at the same time as bringing advice to members of how to enjoy their gardening.
Doors to the Devoran Village Hall will be open before 7.30pm with the talk expected to begin by 7.45pm January 16.
We will also have refreshments available along with a plant swap and sale.
