Social

A summary of social events which we have enjoyed in recent years, including Presidents' Weekends.

A year in the social life of our club. We work hard but we also enjoy ourselves.



Belmont Gardens21st May 2018 - A Tour of Belmont Gardens. The visit to Belmont Gardens, Near Favershamwas very enjoyable. The Head Gardener, Graeme, gave us a walking tour around his beautiful gardens to see some of the many species of plants and trees they have at Belmont. He told us about the seasonal work involved in maintaining the gardens. Throughout the tour Graeme shared his gardening knowledge and expertise with us and invited us to ask lots of questions.

Safari Lunch15th April 2018 - Safari lunch. This is where each course of the meal is eaten at a different members’ house with a different group of people. It is an organisational nightmare but at the same time very enjoyable for those taking part. It can entail a fair bit of driving as our members are spread over a fairly large area ranging from Elham in the South to Whitstable in the North and Wingham in the East and Faversham in the West. 

Valentine's dinner 201812th February 2018 - Valentine's dinner. This was held at the Rising Sun in Stourmouth. Good food and good fellowship in an excellent cosy pub made for a great evening.
