A large crowd came along to celebrate the Foxton Garden Society’s 25th anniversary.

Members old and new, and some from other clubs, met at the Robert Monk Hall in Foxton to toast the anniversary.

Among the 70 plus people were the inugural chairman Peter Pickering and the Down to Earth team from BBC Radio Leicester, who recorded a show at the event. The society has raised £40,000 for charities over its 25 years.
