Good afternoon all and many thanks to those of you who came to hear Sue Nulty on baking last month. Our next event will be the Harvest Supper Quiz evening next Thursday; we are very nearly sold out for this and tickets will not be available on the night, so if you would like to come please contact us as soon as possible (using the contact form above) – as we are serving food we do need to know in advance how many people will be attending; tickets are £5 per person.
The format of the quiz evening will be:
We are currently sitting down to plan next year’s events, so if there’s anything you’d like us to consider, or a place or an exhibition you think we should be going to, please do let me know. We plan to hold a meeting in January when the new Sutton’s Seeds catalogues will be available (bear in mind you get a 50% discount from Sutton’s as a KGG member) to talk about seed orders and perhaps arrange some sharing/swapping, but everything else is currently up for grabs.
A series of events that has been proving popular with the gardeners of the KGG is the monthly mardle, organised by Tim Reeves. Tim says: The Kitchen Garden Group Mardle is a small, informal, social meeting intended to bring KGG members together between the main meetings. Since the spring, the Mardle has been held monthly in Sandringham clubs, members' gardens, and in a semi-private garden at Sandringham. Where possible, we have sat down for a chat and a drink after a visit. Questions have been answered, plants identified and there has been swapping of seeds and young plants.
To become involved, a Kitchen Garden Group member must opt in by emailing me, then they'll receive the Mardle group email.
I will telephone members without an email account. If you'd like to share your garden, provide something more kitchen oriented, can do a short talk or have any suggestions then please contact me.
My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
We’d like to get something similar going for the bakers and flower arrangers among you, but at present can’t figure out quite how to do it – any suggestions?
We look forward to seeing you at the quiz evening or in January, and to receiving your suggestions for next year.
