Chiltern Edge Horticultural Society

Your Local Gardening Club covering Sonning Common, Peppard, Kidmore End and the surrounding area.

Chiltern Edge Horticultural Society (CEHS)

Welcome to the website of your local gardening club serving Sonning Common, Peppard and the surrounding area.

The Society was formed in 1959 and has membership of about 150.

The Society holds evening talks during the winter months and coach trips to interesting gardens during the summer. We hold two flower and produce shows a year and a summer garden reception for members and guests.

We are a friendly bunch, always happy to welcome new members so why not come along to one of our winter talks or shows and give us a try. Then perhaps you might like to become a full member of the Society (annual cost £6). You don't need any qualifications to join – just an interest in gardens and/or growing things..
