Cuckmere Valley Horticultural Society is a thriving group of local people who are interested in gardens, design and gardening, raising plants and vegetables in gardens or on allotments, or who just like visiting or hearing about other people's gardens. Anyone can join. It’s open to all ages and abilities. You do not have to be an expert gardener to enjoy the benefits of the society, or even have a garden or allotment. A window box or just an interest in all things horticultural will do.

We usually meet on the third Tuesday of the month 2-4 p.m. in the War Memorial Hall from January to December (no meeting in August) but for full details see our programme on our Alfriston WI Village Noticeboard (next to the Village Shop) or our Facebook page, If you would like to join us why not come along to an initial meeting and let us welcome you?
