Churt Horticultural and Produce Society (CHAPS)
CHAPS is for anyone who likes gardening and growing vegetables. The society’s roots can be traced back to the 1940’s when many Churt villagers grew their own vegetables for food. Today members are a mix of talented and experienced gardeners and those who just do it for fun. We meet regularly in the Village Hall or at Quinnettes and have a programme of events which includes guest speakers, our Spring Summer and Autumn Shows, trips out and the Summer Garden Party.
If you have experience you wish to share, have a desire to learn more about growing or simply want to attend the social functions we’d be delighted for you to join CHAPS.
Membership costs just £5 a year and for that you are able to take part in all of the society's shows and talks and obtain discounts at several local gardening outlets.
Below you will find our programme for 2016 and the names and contact details of our committee members. We are a friendly bunch so if you’d like to find out more just drop us an email.Pictures from the Summer show with the Prizewinners
You’ll be surprised how easy it is to put in an entry to a show – 8 daffodils, a single rose, 6 tomatoes – and how much fun it is to see how well you have done.
All the shows have classes for children to enter so parents who don’t have time to put together an entry themselves can encourage their children to do so instead.
