THE RCHS AGM
TUESDAY 20th FEBRUARY 2018
St Lawrence Church Hall 7pm.
Wine & Nibbles
Ruislip Central Horticultural Society is a membership-based, non-profit organisation dedicated to all things horticultural.
The Society acts as a valuable resource to its members on horticultural matters, as well as organising flower shows, talks and events. The RCHS promotes the interests of garden and allotment cultivators, bringing people together who have similar interests, to share experience and knowledge. The society also incorporates a specialist Cactus Section, which holds its own events and meetings, and also has a great part to play in our three shows each year. Membership to the RCHS includes access to all Cactus Section events. It also includes access to the Eastcote Horticultural Society trading centre. See drop down menu above for details.
Membership is open to all, with the group being based around the Ruislip, Uxbridge and Pinner areas. We have members from areas as far as Hayes, Northwood, Moor Park and Watford.
The annual membership fee is a nominal £5, with all proceeds being directed back into the Society.
For 2017 the RCHS has received a Grant kindly awarded by Hillingdon Council Arts Department. We appreciate greatly the help from Hillingdon Council and will be using it for our Floral Art and local Schools Competitions within our Shows
It is with sadness that the Committee inform you, that so soon again, we have lost one of our longest standing committee Members. Nigel Thornton passed away peacefully in his sleep on Thursday 15th February 2018
Nigel was a member of the RCHS for over 25 years and played a very worthwhile role on the Committee for many years as Horticultural Trading Hut Manager. He used to attend many events and was always willing to lend a hand in the hard work.
Our thoughts are with his Wife Avril and their Daughter Lindsey.
Nigel’s funeral will be held at Ruislip Crematorium at 12.15 on 26th February 2018 in the West Chapel.
Nigel’s wishes are for NO flowers please, however if you wish to make a donation please click HERE
