Lecture Group

The society is delighted to announce a resuming of our lecture group with a talk from Society member and Vice Chairman of Uxbridge Local History Society, Tony Mitchell who will give a presentation on Thursday 28th September at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. His talk ‘Journey Across Siberia’ promises to be a very interesting one, as it is about a lady buried in the Hillingdon & Uxbridge Cemetery, who made a gruelling journey in 1890’s in search of a plant that was believed to cure leprosy. Admission will be £3 on the door (by coins or card) refreshments available.

We look forward to seeing lots of members for this exciting event. Visitors welcome.

If you have any queries, please contact secretary@ickenham-horticultural.org.uk.

L A warm wecome to our Lecture group and myself Graham Tarling. I've  been running the Lecture group since April 1997, when I took over from Bert Simpkins. The first lecture I organised in October 1997 was Called 'Four Seasons at Windsor', presented by Len Critchlow, and was about Saville Gardens, Windsor.
Our Lecture group programme starts In October, through to March, except January because of expected bad weather, in all it is five meetings, unless I decide to do an extra, which I have done on occasions, and always give that talk myself.

 s far as I am concerned. the reason my predecessor asked me to take over the group was because of my Horticultural qualifications, and background. Over the years I have managed to collect numerous City & Guilds qualifications, and an Ordinary National Diploma in Amenity Horticulture which was obtained at Writtle College Chelmsford. I also hold a national Chainsaw Certificate and a Spray certificate, and I now have 36 years experience in the industry. For the last 11 years I have been self employed maintaining private gardens In Ickenham & Ruislip.
Please do come along to our talks, they are well worth going to, and if you do need any horticultural advice please feel free to contact me, ( as long as you are a member of our society of course )
Happy Gardening, Graham Tarling
