President's Report 2023



The Halling Gardening Society has enjoyed 2023. Members have once again shown their love for
gardening not only with the support of the Spring and Autumn shows but they have showcased
their talents by the high standard of the produce that has been on display. This is a great credit to
all who have taken part. The talk from the Cobham Gardener did not happen due to illness and a
replacement could not obtained at short notice.
A plant sale was held in the car park of The Five Bells with their permission. This was to raise
awareness of HGS and proved to be a great success. In fact, all plants were sold out in a short
time and we had a number of enquiries from possible new members. Thank you to all those who
supported this new initiative.
Pat Catchpole and the rest of the Committee have spent many hours on the shows and other
events. The Committee has been most supportive with organising and decision making. Thank
you to all the Committee for their continued hard work.
Also, thank you to all members for your ongoing support and I hope next year will prove to be just
as successful.

Chris Beaney, President
