Hutton Horticultural Society
Established in 1947 with the aim to promote, encourage and support gardening and associated activities within the community for people of all ages, abilities and gender.
We manage our own gardening shop ~ the ‘Trading Shed’, which provides free advice, a wide range of gardening equipment & produce at discounted prices, regular ‘Special Offers’ and a tool hire service.
As a society, we provide a range of activities for our members and the local community, subsidised days trips, annual Dinner and talks; as well as two annual shows where our members are able to exhibit their hard grown produce as well as baking skills, floral art and hand crafted articles for free.
We produce a monthly bulletin which is sent by email to all our members. (Postal is optional). In it we let our members know the latest offers at the trading shed, gardening tips for the month as well as other useful information.
By being affiliated to a wide range of national and local organisations there is a host of information, advice and opportunities afforded to us as a society and in turn; our members.
We are pleased to say that on production of your Membership Card at Oliver's Butchers, 212 Rayleigh Road Hutton, members will receive a 10% discount on all meat products to the value of £10 or over.
