Gardening club wants to grow members

A GARDENING club is appealing for new members.

The Chiltern Edge Horticultural Society has 229 members but would like to see the number return to the 400-plus it had in the Sixties and Seventies.

The society has been running for 55 years and covers an area including Sonning Common, Peppard, Kidmore End and surrounding areas.

All its activities are funded by membership fees, which range from £5.50 to £11 a year.

Chairman Mark Richards said: “We have quite an active profile in the area but like a lot of other groups we have got an ageing membership and are not noticing a lot of younger people coming through.
