ICKENHAM & SWAKELEYS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY ( LECTURE GROUP SECTION )
A warm wecome to our Lecture
group and myself Graham Tarling..I've been running the Lecture group since April 1997, when I took over
from Bert Simpkins. The first lecture I organised in October 1997 was Called 'Four Seasons at Windsor',
presented by Len Critchlow, and was about Saville Gardens, Windsor.
Our Lecture group programme starts In October, through
to March, except January because of expected bad weather, in all it is five meetings, unless I decide to do an extra, which
I have done on occasions, and always give that talk myself.
far as I am concerned. the reason my predecessor asked me to take over the group was because of my Horticultural qualifications,
and background. Over the years I have managed to collect numerous City & Guilds qualifications, and an Ordinary National
Diploma in Amenity Horticulture which was obtained at Writtle College Chelmsford. I also hold a national Chainsaw Certificate
and a Spray certificate, and I now have 36 years experience in the industry. For the last 11 years I have been self
employed maintaining private gardens In Ickenham & Ruislip.
come along to our talks, they are well worth going to, and if you do need any horticultural advice please feel free to contact
me, ( as long as you are a member of our society of course )
Gardening, Graham Tarling
