In the club’s 24th year, Pat Bush remembers how it all began...


"The seeds of the Rushwick Gardeners’ Club were first sown in 1992, when a few villagers recalled that there had been a club in the 1960s. A meeting was called for like-minded folk interested in gardening and 13 of us turned up. A committee was formed and the club of today was born. The cups of that earlier club were found in a loft! My husband – knowing nothing about gardening – found himself elected as chairman and he only went to give me a lift! Frank thoroughly enjoyed his 17 years in his position as chairman and helped see the club grow, well-supported by the members of the community. He made the club a very popular village activity and gardening a ‘fun’ thing! Since his death the club has continued along the same lines under its present leadership."
