Welcome to our Gardening Club Rhydlewis and District Gardening Club has been around since the time of Adam and Eve. In fact, it is believed that one of our members planted and tended the very apple tree that gave rise to the pair being expelled from the garden!!

Whether this urban myth is true or not, the club is here to encourage, improve and extend the members' knowledge of all branches of horticulture. It is open to everyone and new members are all always welcome to come along.

Our activities during the year include a varied programme of talks and social events, summer garden visits, a plant sale, social gatherings/bbq and an annual open show in August.

We held a very successful Produce Show on Tuesday 28th August, especially when the summer weather is taken into consideration. There were some superb vegetable exhibits  (Dai Jones' onions spring to mind!) and the displays of garden flowers were wonderful. Beth Cook's fantastic chocolate birthday cake, in the form of a blooming garden, was a particular talking point, well done on winning a first prize, Beth, in your first Rhydlewis G C Produce Show.

The winner of the cups are as follows;

Vegetable Cup - Janette Sharman
Rose Shield - Pam Evans
J.T. Davies Shield  - Dia Jones
Floral Cup - Pam Evans
Best Exhibit in Show - Eluned Jones
D&G William Shield for Homecraft - Pam Evans

A huge congratulations to all the winners, and a massive thanks to everyone who exhibited their fruit, flowers and homecraft items...now you can all start planning your bulbs for the Spring Show
