Basildon Horticultural Society is affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society and runs a number of social events throughout the year with something for everyone from beginners to seasoned gardeners.
November is fast approaching and with it our AGM. This is traditionally the time of year when we change some of our committee members and this time we are looking to expand our team. Being part of the HortSoc committee is a fun way to contribute to village life. We aim to have between 4 and 6 short meetings a year.. Below is a list of positions which will be on offer:
TREASURER – Deals with Hortsoc financial aspects MEMBERSHIP SECRETARY – Collects membership fees and maintains a record of current members TALKS ORGANISER – To find and book speakers for our twice yearly talks PLANT SALE ORGANISER – To plan and organise the plant sale SHOW ORGANISER – To help make sure all the preparations for the Shows are carried out on time SUNDAY LUNCH LEADER – To arrange the annual Hortisoc Sunday Lunch GARDEN PARTY ORGANISER – To arrange the Summer Garden Party
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in getting involved at any level or if you have any suggestions for future events. Membership costs £6 per family and entitles you to discounts at local businesses & free entry to classes in the show.
