A Happy New Year 2020 to ALL our members
The RCHS Committee would like to wish all members a Very Happy New Year
This year we have seen many highs for the RCHS. We have seen Membership Numbers returning to figures of over 150, record number of people attending and entering the shows as well as coming to the talks. We saw the return of Bob Flowerdew and also the treasurer reports the books look good for 2020.
2020 sees our 80th Anniversary and the society have many surprises to announce as we enter our celebrations in 2020. Traditionally the 80th is celebrated with OAK, so at the AGM we will discuss the society moving forward with the possibility of us planting an Oak in one of the local Ruislip Parks with a plaque along side
If you also turn 80 in 2020 the Society would like to offer you your 2020 RCHS Membership on us! If this applies to you please e mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.
Also the RCHS will be celebrating its 80th Birthday with a very special Garden Party in July, details will be annouced at the AGM!
The 2020 calandar of events will be updated on this site over the Christmas Period so do come back on to see the amazing events we have lined up for next year.
Now is the time for being with family and friends and the committee hope you have a great time. Our Chair would like to make it known that it is only with your support we have reached our 80th, and hope you continue to be part of the RCHS moving forward.
We look forward to seeing you all at the AGM 2020 Tuesday 18th February 2020, 7pm St.Lawrence Church Hall, Pinner
Ruislip Central Horticultural Society is a membership-based, non-profit organisation dedicated to all things horticultural.
The RCHS has a long and impressive history. Established in 1949 on the theme of ‘the encouragement and improvement of the best fruit, the most choice flowers and the most useful culinary vegetables‘, the Society has continued to promote all aspects of horticulture.
Whilst we cherish our history, the Society strives to maintain a modern outlook, helping to promote horticulture to the next generation of gardeners and horticulturists. We are always working hard to bring in young blood to the society, to create a future generation that can carry forward the satisfactions of mother nature
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.
