Capel Horticultural Society – 125 years and still growing strong!

When originally founded in 1893 we were known as Capel and District Horticultural Society so it seems only appropriate that members of the current Newdigate and Ockley Societies join us in the various celebratory events planned for this anniversary year.

Our first event on 13 February was a trip to RHS Wisley for a celebratory lunch followed by an illustrated talk.  35 people attended, 26 from Capel; 4 from Newdigate and 5 from Ockley. After a delicious meal Stefan White entertained us with an amusing and informative talk-Skulduggery in the Shrubbery.  An excellent outing on a cold, wet and windy February day and a great way to kick off our programme of events throughout 2018.
