Between 1939 and 1943 the staff and pupils of Trinity County Grammar school were evacuated to Hatfield Peverel. After the Second World War, the School commissioned and gifted the archway and gate to the parish. The structure tells a wonderful story of learning, friendship and play between children during the war.
The Society has been going from the late nineteenth century, and it has carried on with the only breaks during the two world wars.
The aims of the society are to promote all aspects of gardening from the smallest of front gardens, to the largest of plots, kitchen gardens or allotment.
Gardeners who have a wish to show the results of their efforts at the twice yearly village shows are encouraged to do so. Help and support is offered to those who need advice At the shows there are flower fruit and vegetable classes to enter, also handicraft, photography and cookery classes.
We have a plant sale and coffee morning in the spring, to raise money to fund the two village shows.
Like all organisations it needs new faces and ideas, to keep it thriving and vibrant. If you have a love of gardening or have other skills please join and take part in the activities on offer.
