Dufftown Horticultural Society

Annual General Meeting

AGM

Monday 25th November 2019 at 7:30pm
Mortlach Memorial Hall, Dufftown

The Dufftown Horticultural Society welcomes new members and contributors to the AGM for 2019.  We are always looking for new supporters and volunteers to bring fresh ideas,  thoughts and innovations.  

The Dufftown Flower Show is the Society’s largest commitment.  Run over two days in September, with almost one hundred exhibitors and over a thousand exhibits.  The Flower Show attracts exhibitors from Dufftown, nearby towns, and from far afield.

Baking and handicraft classes are also a big part of the show, so you don’t have to be a gardener to take part and make a valued contribution!

Please do join us.  We look forward to welcoming you.
