Tuesday 22nd October - Clubnight talk by Johnny Walkers
Local Daffodil enthusiast Johnny Walkers will be talking about his career in showing daffodil flowers at the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) flower shows at Chelsea and Harrogate.
Due to his success he is often know as “The Man with The Midas Touch”. Winning 29 gold medals at Chelsea and 33 gold awards at Harrogate with 3 best in shows.
Having Dutch parents, Johnny was destined to have a career in bulbs, growing, selling and displaying daffodils since leaving school. Now retired, he spends a lot of his time giving talks on the subject and judging for the RHS.
Venue is Cley Hall Hotel, High Street, Spalding. PE11 1TX (free parking at Holland Road car park 150 yards away). 7.30 for 8pm start.
£3/head in aid of MS Society.
A calendar detailing the 30 or so events we’ve been running or are yet to do so in 2019 is here: CalendarLeaflet2019final2
In September, we still have a Brunch meet on Sunday 29th at Wyberton.
Our planned visit to the Escape Room in October has been replaced by a visit to the ‘We’ll Meet Again’ WW2 Museum on Freiston Shore near Boston; that will take place on Tuesday 8th. And, on Tuesday 22nd, we will welcome acclaimed Lincolnshire horticulturist Johnny Walkers who will give a talk on his career, which has included a run of over 20 consecutive Gold Medals at Chelsea for his work on daffodils.
Full details of individual events appear on our Events page and in the monthly newsletter.
We’ve also been out and about at a number of other Classic Car Shows across the summer: our gazebo was at Baston/Grimsthorpe and Boston and we will also be at Sleaford on 7 September.
