The Caterham & District Horticultural Society is appealing to local residents to help bring colour to Caterham after lockdown. The group, believed to have been founded in 1886, have several social initiatives underway that will be revived once restrictions are lifted.
The Community Garden and Caterham in Bloom projects aim to unite Caterham through gardening, exercise and companionship; giving people the chance to share their experience, knowledge and skills. The Society encourages people of all ages to enjoy the outdoors: pupils from Hillcroft School were about to help install new planters, bought with donations from Caterham Rotary Club and Sutton & East Surrey Water, in the High Street before lockdown postponed the activity.
Janet Manning, Chairman: “We’ve welcomed three new members since lockdown and we’d love our wonderful Society to grow even more!”
