Welcome to Church Crookham Garden Society

16th December 2016

Church Crookham Garden Society, Fleet, Hampshire UKA vibrant garden society active in Church Crookham, FLEET, Hampshire. We hold several annual events and shows and run a comprehensively stocked stores hut with discounts for members.

HISTORY

Church Crookham Garden Society was formed in 1954 as the Ryelaw Garden Society. It was founded by residents of Ryelaw Road as an outlet for their interest in gardening.

At some time in its early stages, the Society began marketing garden supplies and until 1997 traded from sheds located in Moore Close.

The name of the Society was changed to Church Crookham Garden Society to reflect the wider residential location of its members.

Shows were organised and now two shows per year are held, one in the spring and one in late summer.

In 1997 the ground occupied by the Society’s sheds was subject to planning consent for residential building and the Society moved to a purpose built concrete structure located in the car park of the Crookham Memorial Hall in Sandy Lane, Church Crookham.

The Society is run by two committees:

  • Main committee
  • Show committee

Each committee is made up of elected members, and is chaired by the Society Chairman.

Trading shed update

26th June 2020

Alec Grant writes :

Dear Members

I hope you and your families are all well and, if so, enjoying the summer weather.

This is becoming a weekly update as, due to the Covid restrictions, together with the vulnerability of our shed teams and members, we are do not consider it safe to return to normal and will need to continue with the collection action slot system for some time.  Sadly, the relaxations announced by the Gov will not assist us.

Following recent deliveries we now have:

Levingtons M3 with a significant price reduction to £8.90 from £11.00 – this is high quality compost which does not go hard when it is dry

Doff Multi Rose 1l fertiliser @ £3.40 which makes 300 litres

Doff Tomato Feed NPK 4,5,9 1l @ £3.00 (also making 300 litres) and a significant saving against 1l Tomorite NPK 4,3,8 of £5.70

We also have Horticultural Sharp Sand at £5.40 20kg or £0.50 for 3kg

You will be pleased to know that we now have a good quantity of compost – strangely the Covid lockdown has brought this product to near extinction.

The Maxicrop seaweed organic liquid is also now back in stock.

Anyway, enough of my ramblings, the shed will be open on Saturday and if you wish any products please email alecjgrant@icloud.com and I will check the stock, assign a collection slot and send details for payment.

Attached (link below) is a revised price list with some new items highlighted, one  price reduction and no increases.
