THE FORDINGBRIDGE AND DISTRICT HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY

All evening meetings are held at 7.30pm  in the West Room of the Greenwich Suite at Avonway Community Centre at 36 Shaftesbury Street, Fordingbridge SP6 1JF  (There are a limited number of disabled car parking spaces at Avonway; general car parking is available free of charge in the main Fordingbridge Car Park located about 50 yards further along the road).

Avonway Management has asked that should you have to park on the road, then this is done sensibly without parking on the bend or obstructing any neighbouring gates or driveways. Thank you.

Please note that the use of Bikini Vases is not permitted in the Table Shows, Spring Show or Evening Show.
