Shipdham Garden and Horticultural Society

Has been active within the Shipdham area for over 40 years. The aim of the Society is to encourage interest in gardening and horticulture at all levels, providing entertainment, guidance and support in a friendly atmosphere.
We are affiliated to both the Royal Horticultural Society and the Norfolk and Norwich Horticultural Society.

Most are held in the United Reformed Church Hall, Shipdham on the first Thursday of every month, except December, January, February and August. Guest speakers and Members give presentations on a wide variety of subjects with gardening and wildlife themes. The Annual General Meeting, which appoints the Committee responsible for the day-to-day running of the Society and gives Members the opportunity to comment upon any aspect of the Society, is held on the first Thursday in October.
There is no charge to attend any of these meetings, other than a nominal sum for refreshments.
Social Events
In December we have our Christmas Party; our Annual Dinner takes place in January; in July we have an outing with a gardening theme; and in August we have an open air Saturday Coffee Morning.
We hold two shows each year – one in Spring and one in Autumn. This broadens the range of varieties in season and available for exhibition, so maximising the opportunities for members to exhibit. We have several trophies which are awarded to members on an annual basis.
Membership Fees
Our year runs from 1st October to 30th September with an annual membership fee of £6 per person. A new member joining after 1st April becomes paid-up until 1st October the following year.
