This hot spell has been so busy for us at the club.  This tests our abilities to cope with quite a small volunteer basis!  If anyone feels they would like to help in any way to support the club please do not hesitate to give your name and number to a collector or contact us us at the farm and we can pass on messages to our Chairman.  We need more committee members and the AGM date is on your membership cards, it would be great to see you


From 2021 we will be offering only annual memberships  and recommend online membership via the website on
