Harrow in LEAF hosted the Royal Horticultural Society on June 23rd, from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. Admission was FREE.

On the afternoon of June 23rd, 2018 we welcomed 6 volunteers from the Royal Horticultural Society to deliver an "Ask the Experts" Event between 2.30pm to 4.30pm.
We were expecting 4 or maybe 5 fruit and vegetable experts from the RHS to give a short talk on allotments followed by a Q&A session, but we got 6. A glut!

Over 40 Harrow in LEAF members and supporters were both entertained and educated via talks, Q&A's and walks around the West Harrow large allotment site.

As usual, to make LEAF happen we include presenters, attendees and our own wonderful volunteers - thank you to all.

Great News! Harrow in LEAF awarded a grant of £2,500 by the Trustees of the Garfield Weston Foundation to help renovate our green Headquarters.

"Thank you for your recent application.

I am pleased to inform you that the Trustees have reviewed your application and are delighted to make a grant of £2,500 to your organisation. The grant is sent with the best wishes of the Weston family"

The Harrow in LEAF Management Committee were delighted, to say the least, to hear that the Garfield Weston Foundation had accepted our application to enable us to make good our HQ Hut.

We thank them enormously.

With our limited funds and resources our HQ was slowly being overcome by Mother Nature. This grant will allow us to make the necessary repairs to enable it to become the centre of our own social & fund raising activities again. Committee Meetings, Annual Show planning events, Plant Sales, pop-up cafes, Quiz Nights and BBQs.

The Harrow in LEAF Management Committee also extend great thanks to our Vice-Chair, Jill Mcloughlin, for stepping forward and taking over the grant application process.

We appreciate that she has put in many hours of application form filling, form amending and letter writing. We are pleased that Jill's voluntary hours and efforts have resulted in this positive gift from the Weston family, to enable us to continue making Harrow greener.

Together - We make LEAF Happen!

Harrow Fuchsia Society make donation of £100 to Harrow in LEAF, following sad decision to disband taken at their AGM on 25th January 2018 .

Fuchsia Society
Beautiful Fuchsias at our Annual Show

Harrow Fuchsia Society, formed in the 70's, have supported us from our very beginning in 1998 and participated in our Plant Sales and Annual Shows. We are sorry to hear that they have decided to disband, and say thanks to Peter Luff (Chairman) and the Committee of Harrow Fuchsia Society for their year's of support and their kind donation.

As a result of this news, the Harrow in LEAF Show Committee has taken the decision to increase the number of Fuchsia Exhibition Classes in our Annual Horticultural and Craft Show. We shall be liaising closely with Harrow's Fuchsia growers on this matter.

Extract from recent letter from Harrow Fuchsia Society:

"It was decided, as a token of appreciation of the Harrow in LEAF organisation to donate £100.00 to it's funds from our residual assets, to help keep the horticultural interests in Harrow alive!
Thank you for being there...
With all Best Wishes, Peter V. Luff, ex-Chairman"
