WHY NOT MAKE YOUR OWN CHRISTMAS WREATH THIS YEAR?
It is easier than you may think to make a stunning wreath to hang on your door or gate. The following two videos show you just how easy. By walking round your garden with some secateurs, you can collect enough material to make a winter or Christmas wreath for yourself or as a gift.
This video shows how to make a wreath with a natural ring made from willow or hazel twigs and foliage from the garden:
This one uses a metal form (a circular double ring), which can be found online, at florists (if they are open) and stores such as HobbyCraft and only cost a few £s:
You will need either a wreath form or some fine willowy branches from your garden (or your neighbours!) and some fine winding wire, as explained in the videos. All you need to decorate the wreath form are bunches of greenery, seed heads, flowers etc from your garden. You can always add anything else you like, such as baubles, beads, ribbons and Christmas decorations.
Children can also join in the fun, collecting foliage such as holly, ivy and evergreen leaves.
Once you have made your beautiful wreath, why not send a photo to our Facebook page to inspire others!
A date for your diary next year. We will be holding the AGM on Tuesday 30th November 2021.

GARDEN PHOTO COMPETITION
In the absence of a Fillongley Show this year due to the Covid virus,
The Society is pleased to offer a
Competition for Gardens and Allotments by Photograph
open to anyone who lives, or has an allotment, within 10 miles of Fillongley Church.
This is a fun, free-to-enter competition of garden produce – flowers and vegetables – to be submitted by photograph only, rather than a photographic competition.

Your name and address should be included with your photographs and sent ONLY by email. (The address is for postage of rosettes only and will not be shared with other parties.)
Names of winners and general location (such as Jane Smith of Meriden) will be shown alongside winning photographs. If you prefer us not to use your full name or location, please state this on your email.
Rosettes will be given to 3rd place for adults and 6th place for children.
All entries to be submitted by email to –

It is with deep regret that the committee have decided to take the hard decision of cancelling the show for this year 2020 due to Covid 19.
We will be back in 2021 and we hope to make the show bigger and better and celebrate all that is good within our community!
We know that all members look forward to the show and pencil in the date as they pay their annual subscriptions. As devastating as the decision to cancel this years’ show is please be assured that the members of the General Committee and the Executive Committee continue to work hard dealing with local business and collaborating with national bodies.
Should any member wish to have a refund of their subscription please let Claire White know and the Treasurer will be asked to make payments. It would help us to manage our budget if anyone wishing to have a refund would let us know by the end of May. Those subscriptions that we are permitted to keep would then be seen as generous donations that would help us to plan a great show in 2021.
The committee would like to thank everyone for their continued support, we value all that you do for us as a society. We will send out a newsletter to update everyone on ongoing developments and new ideas.
Keep safe in these difficult times.
