 Nayland with Wissington 2012 Jubilee Calendar
81.Posted:    August 11, 2011 - 11:49 AM - Updated ,    By:    Community Council 

The 2012 Jubilee Year Calendar is now available.

Fantastic new views, exciting new format.

The 2012 Jubilee Year Calendar may be bought at local shops (Post Office, Hatten’s Stores & Forget Me Not Stores) or by downloading and posting back the order form - further details and images available on the new 'Calendar' page of this website.

The stunning photographs in the 2012 calendar provide a wonderful record of the parish as it is today. They represent the diverse activities in our active community and reflect the beauty of the village and its surrounding landscape.

In addition, an older image relating to each modern scene is included with historical notes by Wendy Sparrow, the Parish Recorder. Being Jubilee year, Wendy has also included a history of ‘Royal Celebrations in Nayland’.

A photographic competition, open to anyone living or working in the parish, is held each May to generate the photographs for the twelve months and a front cover. All the entries are now available to view on the 'Calendar' page of this website in an online photo album.

Anniversary Party

The ingredients were just right for this year’s special summer garden party; in a period of unsettled weather even the sun beamed down.  Over fifty members came along to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Society in the beautiful gardens at Parkers.

After welcome drinks Andrew guided us round the garden, revealing its bountiful variety of plants and produce. There was plenty to eat and drink a photo quiz to keep the grey matter ticking over and a display of HortSoc's activities since 1981 to recall days gone by. Strawberries and cream, a celebration toast and a 30th anniversay cake rounded off the festivities.

Pauline Horrell and Peggy Shreeve received prizes for amasingly identifying all the photos of the committee and other members in their youth while John Jervois and Margaret Smy took home prizes in the draw.  Huge thanks are due to the committee for their hard work putting it all together and especially to Andrew and Sue Gowen for their fantastic hospitality.  

Everyone said they thoroughly enjoyed the evening - the committee thank members for coming to share this special occasion.

Helmingham Hall Gardens and Autumn Plant Fair

We are now taking bookings for a members minibus outing to Helmingham Hall Gardens and Autumn Plant Fairon Sunday 18th September.  

The minibus will be leaving Nayland 10.30am and departing from Helmingham 4pm at latest.  The subsidised cost is £15 to include travel and entrance to the Garden & Plant Fair.  

The spectacular moated grade 1 listed Helmingham Hall set in beautiful ancient deer park has beautiful gardens which include: nineteenth century Parterre, dramatic herbaceous, shrub, late summer borders, knot, rose & wild flower gardens, Victorian kitchen garden and orchard.  This provides an impressive venue for the Fair organised in partnership with Suffolk Plant Heritage (formerly NCCPG) which will have national plant collections, specialist nurseries, Plant Doctor & Apple Detective, garden accessories, home-made lunches & teas.  

This popular venue promises something for everyone and spaces are very limited.  If you wish to book a seat please check availability with Lorraine.

On Tuesday 18th October Matthew Tanton Brown, manager at The Place for Plants, will be returning to Nayland to talk about Vegetable Growing at 7.40 for 8pm Church Hall, Bear Street.  All are welcome.

84.Posted:    July 02, 2011 - 12:35 PM - Updated ,    By:    Nayland Horticultural Society 

At the AGM & Fun Quiz on 19th April our chairman, Trevor Smy, thanked Ken Willingale for checking the accounts and Pat Bray for spreading our news in the local press. He added Hortsoc are very appreciative of Andrew and Sue Gowen for kindly hosting the summer garden evening at Parkers and expressed thanks to Pauline Horrell and Rosie Bugg, who are stepping down from the committee, for their support over the years.
      Tom Gardiner kindly conducted the election of officers.  They are as follows: Chairman Trevor Smy, Secretary Lorraine Brooks, Treasurer Sylvia Bond, Committee Olive Noakes, Hazel Gardiner, Anne Spencer and Colin Ramsell.
      Following the meeting Lorraine conducted fun quiz which everyone seemed to enjoy -  winners were 'Blooming Roses' with 'Sunflowers' in second place after a tie-break with 'Spring Blossomers'.

The day after the AGM members of the committee were invited to visit the gardens of Muckspreader Hall.  Readers of the Community Times will know this is the home of its gardening columnist the Old Muckspeader.
      It was an unseasonally warm day to enjoy the lovely tranquil garden. The OM/S showed us round, highlighting some of his favourite horticultural performers of the moment and answering our questions, of which there were many. We wandered through the varying aspects of the garden admiring the features and the plants.  The woodland areas were a particular favourite with the wild flowers, such as Fritillaria and Cowslips on display and in the glade the Bluebells were about to put on their show. Around the wildlife pond Hostas were growing well and as yet undamaged by snails and the Dierama talked about in his gardening column was springing into life. We are very grateful to the OM/S and Lady M/S for their kind hospitality.

The coach outing to Merriments Gardens and Great Dixter House and Gardens on 7th June proved to be another enjoyable visit.  Whilst some said they had their favourite others said they were both equally enchanting gardens which provided plenty of food for thought. Both venues certainly displayed some fantastic planting compositions and they provided great inspiration for our own gardens.  Many of us returned home with great intentions after spending more than just time in the plant centres!
      There are certainly plenty of smiling faces in the photos taken at the gardens shown on our website. A few suggestions for venues next year have been put forward but if you have any ideas do let us know.

HortSoc will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary at our annual Garden Party on 15th July at Parker's by kind invitation of Andrew and Sue Gowen. Members are promised the opportunity to view this lovely garden before enjoying celebration refreshments and buffet, a photo quiz, garden games and a free draw.  This is a members only event.  If you wish to come to the party please contact Lorraine for your free ticket.  

Many thanks to everyone who supported the Morning Market which was a huge success raising funds to enable us to hold the annual Flower Show which will be held on 6th August at 2-5pm in Nayland Village Hall.  

This year new competitions and classes have been introduced to the existing sections for vegetables, fruit, flowers, flower arranging, photography, art, craft, cookery and country drinks. The new competitions include the best scarecrow and the best hanging basket which will be judged in situ on 30th July.

This is a friendly village show; remember fellow exhibitors all share this interest with you and the more experienced will be delighted to offer advice to the novice and tips are given in the schedules which are available from Nayland Post Office, Forget-Me-Not, Kerridge’s butchers, Boxted Fillpots, on our website naylandhortsoc.org.uk or from the Secretary.

 Spring Show
89.Posted:    April 26, 2011 - 10:37 AM ,    By:    Nayland Horticultural Society 

Our second annual Spring Show on the 26th March attracted 70 entries, 17 up on last year and the judges felt the quality of the exhibits were good. By contrast to last year’s very late spring the warmer weather of this spring enabled greater number of entries in some classes such as the Hyacinths and Camellia.

Visitors again commented favourably on the event and the relaxing atmosphere in which to enjoy refreshments. Although the event is not held as a fundraiser it raised just over £60 profit for Society funds. HortSoc would like to thank the judges, all our helpers, those who donated prizes or cakes, all the entrants and visitors for their support.

Results:
1. Pot of spring bulbs, corms or tubers – Tom Gardiner, Sheila Sessions, Lorraine Brooks
