On a warm June evening 37 members of Oswestry Garden Society, and friends, met at the home of Gillian and Jon Fynnes to celebrate 30 years since the Society was formed.

Chairperson Gaynor Kanes thanked founder Margaret Clarke for her foresight and presented her with a bouquet of locally grown flowers. After a tour of the beautiful gardens members and friends were treated to a celebration cake made by Natalie Bainbridge.

Photographs and press clippings, charting the society’s history, were available for members to view. Members donated many raffle prizes, which raised money for society funds. Entry fees were donated to the National Garden Scheme.

New members are always welcome. For information on meetings tel. Gaynor on 07790021656 or email gaynor.kanes@gmail.com
