  • Local AGS Shows - Early Spring Show - Saturday 4th March 2023

    The Alpine Garden Society runs a series of shows throughout the year at venues across the country. These shows provide an opportunity to see beautifully grown plants and to purchase plants from a variety of specialist nurseries. The Early Spring show will take place on Saturday 4th March 2023 at Theydon Bois Village Hall, CM16 7ER.

    This show is able to operate thanks to a large number of volunteers from the Epping Forest and Essex groups. Help is needed on the Friday early evening to set up tables. On the Saturday there are numerous jobs including the door, stewarding, raffle and kitchen duties. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated – you do not need any prior knowledge as you will be shown what to do.
