Share your memories of Dig for Victory

Published on: 31 Oct 2013

MEMBERS of Downend Horticultural Society are looking forward to embarking on the club’s 70th year. 

The organisation was formed in November 1943 as part of the country’s Dig For Victory campaign to encourage an interest in gardening.

At one time the club boasted more than 100 members. In recent years however numbers have fallen to around 30 so the society would love to see some new faces. 

The first meeting of the club’s 70th year takes place on November 14.  The second meeting is on December 12 with garden question time.

The club runs two shows a year in spring and summer.  Meetings are every second Thursday of the month from 7.30-9pm at the Assembly Hall, Salisbury Road, Downend. To find out more call Viv Brake on 956 0178 or Roger Davis on 957 1703.
