STALBRIDGE GARDEN SOCIETY
Tony Moore our new chairman welcomed everyone to the meeting, he gave out the notices and introduced this month’s speaker who was David moon.
Geoff Jeans our vice chairman gave out an update on how Brian Spiller was progressing, and that how the family hope to have him home soon, which is good news.
Geoff was also helping Chris Wiles judge our second attempt at the spring show as the daffodils were very behind last month and we only had few entries.
David Moon ‘s talk was on “The National Garden Scheme” he began by telling us all about the NGS how it was formed back in 1927, Edward Lutchens and Gertrude Jekel’s gardens were some of the first to open their garden under the scheme.
There are now over 4.000 gardens opening up to raise money for “Cancer charities” in the country. To date over £50 million pounds have been raised for charities. Since 2016 they have banked 3 million pounds.
Lots of gardens are open throughout the year, from little tiny courtyard, to three acre gardens, some gardens, are well known, such as Hester combe, Great Dixter, the Garden on Holly Island, Heale house gardens and Knoll gardens, there are many , many more. Including allotments.
A Popular one is Mary Berry’s garden, she is always there to show the public around as well as being a famous cook, and she is also a fantastic gardener.
Her next door neighbour is Pauline Quirke who also opens her garden under the scheme.
Finally David showed us lots of slides, of lovely gardens around the country, one of which being, Horatio’s, this was a garden set up in memory of a young lad who worked at the Salisbury Spinal care unit, and had lots of fantastic ideas he was beginning to implement. Then taking b break, he went on an expedition to Greenland, tragically the group camp was attacked by a “polar bear”, his friends were badly hurt and Horatio sadly lost his life.
His family, then set about fund raising to complete the garden he had started at the spinal unit, and it is now admired and well used, by the patients and public.
The fund raising continues by the family and there are now more plans for additional Horatio’s gardens at other hospital recovery units. One in Glasgow, where James Alexander Sinclair is going to be the designer, One at Stoke Mandeville, the designer being Joe Swift, and one in Oswestry the designer being Bunny Guinness. This was a very sad but inspiring story.
This talk was fantastic, inspiring, rewarding and were had a beautiful visual display, thank you to Anne Brown for booking this brilliant speaker, we all enjoyed it very much.
David finished with a little talk about in home town being Frome, were he is involved with the Frome in Bloom competition, Jenson Button the formula one racing driver also has a helping hand.
The Spring Show part two results are as follows;-
Wendy Bailey came first in five of the daffodil categories, with a second in one more.
Mary Moore had two first and a second
Michelle had a first
Tony Moore had a second and Marigold Edwards had a third.
Thank you to all of you who took part it was a lovely display, kindly judged once again by Chris Wiles.
The next meeting is on Thursday 10th May 7.30pm in the hall
The talk is ‘Bee Friendly’ gardening with Neil Lovesy.
Enjoy your spring garden, the weather seems to be improving, and we hope getting a little warmer, look out for bees and butterflies, it is always good to add more wildlife friendly plants to your garden to encourage them in!

The rumours are true. The Stalbridge Arms will be opening in 2018 - but this time there's a difference. We have purchased the beautiful building 'lock, stock and barrel' and will open it as soon as we can as an independent Freehouse Pub and Restaurant with Rooms. We aim to make this Pub into something the people of Stalbridge will be proud to take their friends and family to, by completely refurbishing the premises. And we've done this before. Our recently refurbished pub - The Duck At Burtle in Somerset received the Family Dining Award for 2017 from Somerset Life Magazine, having been finalists in our first year for Best Gastro Pub. We want to make our pub the best community pub in Dorset, run for the benefit of the people of Stalbridge and the surrounding area. We would therefore like to engage the residents of Stalbridge by asking you to tell us what kind of drinks you would like served at the New Stalbridge Arms. We are now a FreeHouse and can cater for all tastes! So tell us what you want to drink by filling in our Drinks Survey at our new website. There you will also find our sample menus, showing you the kind of delicious meals we will be serving when we open. We are working hard on the renovation of this beautiful Grade 2 listed building as we speak. This takes time in the planning stages, so we intend to concentrate our initial efforts on opening the bar and restaurant as soon as we can, while working in the background to produce six beautiful guest rooms on the first floor. Tastefully and individually decorated, these rooms will be available for you to invite your friends and family to come and spend some time near to where you live and will also attract people from outside Stalbridge to come and visit this lovely town. So have a look at our new website to get a feel of what we are about and what we intend to offer to the residents of Stalbridge and beyond.

The Gartell Light Railway in Templecombe are holding one of their popular Open Days on Easter Monday 2nd April 2018. They open at 10:00am and operate a frequent train service between 10:30am and 16:30pm.
The Gartell Light Railway is a privately owned and operated 2 foot gauge railway which is open to the public on selected dates through the year. On its open days, the railway operates an intensive train service using 3 trains and is proud to offer a more intensive steam and diesel hauled train service timetable than virtually any other narrow gauge railway. Trains leave our main station at Common Lane every 20 minutes through the day. We have a further 3 stations, Pinesway Junction, Park Lane and Tower View, where each train stops at the platform and performs and interesting manoeuvre where the engine 'runs-round' its train before departing in the opposite direction. Another unique feature of our busy timetable is that 2 trains regularly depart, side by side, for different destinations before one descends the gradient and passes under a bridge as the other one passes overhead!
So come along to the GLR and see for yourself - it really is a great place to visit for all the family. There are lots of interesting things to see together with the 'Pines' buffet serving hot and cold drinks and tasty snacks, our Visitor Centre containing lots of local railway memorabilia, the GLR Shop selling mementos of your visit and our lakeside picnic area - ideally placed for watching the trains pass by!
The GLR is also pleased to say that, despite the size of our trains, we can accommodate our disabled and less-abled visitors. We have level access straight from the car park at Common Lane Station providing easy access to the shop, buffet, station and some other features of the railway. Two sets of our coaches also have been adapted to convey wheelchairs by providing a much larger space - our helpful staff will remove the seats, open the double doors and assist with the loading of wheelchairs etc. Simply ask the guard or a member of staff on the day and we will make the necessary arrangements to assist you.

We endeavour through the Olympic sport of amateur boxing to promote fitness, discipline, friendship, fair play, respect and confidence, increasing quality of life by providing a constructive alternative to anti-social behaviour such as drug and alcohol abuse for the local youth living in Dorset. We also provide positive role models and social inclusion through interaction with our coaching staff and other young boxers.
We have a full committee and currently have four qualified coaches at the club all of whom have to attend certification courses every three years to maintain the highest degree of competency at every level. They all have to be qualified in first aid and CPR and of course, CRB cleared.
We operate child safety policies and have our own child welfare officer.
The club has recently moved to a dedicated business unit split over two floors. We rely purely on grants and donations from the public, keeping the membership fees and weekly cost to a minimum. Please get in touch through the contact us page on our website if you would like to make a donation or have any fundraising suggestions.
