Welcome to Highgate Horticultural Society

Hi Everyone,


“What a wonderful time we had at the Autumn Show.  The sun was shining, teas in the garden and lots of members and friends to catch up with!  Our special guest Iris Holden, a lifelong member (aged 6 and the daughter of our Membership Secretary Myfanwy) presented the awards to the winners, and it was nice to see some new exhibitors. Of course, our stalwart members are to be congratulated and special thanks goes to them. We are also fortunate in having some younger members exhibiting but again the more the merrier.


Overall, we have had a splendid show year, even the cold, wet July show attracted lots
 of visitors.

I want to take the opportunity to thank all our amazing committee members and show helpers – without you the shows simply would not happen. I hope you are enjoying this beautiful Autumn weather and we look forward to seeing you in 2024”
