About RSV meetings
For time, place, and other practical details, see below…
We love our monthly meetings; being in a room with like-minded enthusiasts and experts. Here is a chance to get real, practical advice and instruction from experienced rosarians. Every possible topic of interest relating to rose husbandry and appreciation, is covered.
All that with plenty of laughter and fun and a delish supper.
The programmed part of a meeting is usually finished by 9.30pm, after which it’s conversation and comestibles.
At most meetings a mini rose show competition is held where members may practice their show bench skills and new members may learn how to exhibit roses and get on-the-spot advice from the experts.
Bring your roses and share their glory with all.
Although meetings are ‘members only’ events, visitors are very welcome to come along and dip a toe in the rosy water. Feel free to bring a friend.
