The Committee has decided that members who paid the membership fee in 2020 will not need to pay a membership fee in 2021. Members who did not rejoin in 2020 will still need to pay a membership fee of £3.00, new cards indicate whether a fee is due or not. 2021 membership cards will be available from the Trading Store when you collect goods or will be included with any delivered orders. Please do not come to the Trading Store just to collect your 2021 membership card during February.

The Society operates a small trading store, for members, with a stock of regularly used gardening products such as composts, fertilisers, pest control products, flower pots and a small range of garden tools. Larger gardening items may be ordered. In the spring, discounted purchase of seeds and seed potatoes is available.

The Trading Store is next to the Purley Memorial Hall in Glebe Road and is open from 10:00 to 11:00 every Saturday and Sunday during the months February to October and additionally on Wednesday evenings between 5:00pm and 6:30pm, from April to June. Please feel free to look in any time we are open.

For those with an hour to spare we are always looking for volunteers to help us man (or woman) the Trading Store. If you can spare an hour on a Saturday or Sunday to help in the Trading Store please contact Margaret, our Membership Secretary, on 0118 9417247.

Membership of the Society costs £3.00 a year, you can join at the Trading Store during opening hours, and your membership card may be used to get discounts at various gardening suppliers including Englefield Garden Centre and Collins Hardware in Pangbourne.  Members may also borrow the Society's RHS card which provides entry for one member and one adult guest to any of the RHS gardens at a 30% reduction on normal adult entry rate.

The schedule of talks, visits and events arranged by Purley Horticultural Society can be found on our Meetings page.
