BALCOMBE FLOWER CLUB meet on Friday 29 January 7.30 pm in the Parish Room when they will be enjoying a fish and chip night.

RAINFALL for December 2015 in Balcombe was 3.02 inches. The total rainfall for 2015 was 26.78 inches. This total is much lower than the 2014 total mainly due to a very dry Spring and dry early Summer. During 2015 we had the high temperature of 89.6F/32C on the first of July and an exceptionally high temperature for December of 58.3F/14.6C on the nineteenth of the month.

BALCOME CLUB LOTTO is being drawn on Saturday 30 January at 6.00 pm in the Club. Don’t forget to renew your membership by the end of January otherwise you will have to re-apply.

BALCOMBE GARDENERS’ ASSOCIATION AGM takes place on Friday 5 February in Bramble Hall at 8.00 pm. The AGM is a very popular evening mainly because we keep business to a minimum and offer wine and canapés to all members and prospective members. This is an ideal time to find out what we do and join the Association, which at £10 for life must be the best value membership you will ever get! With this there is the offer of substantial discounts on seeds and plants, and the opportunity to have some friendly and light-hearted competition with other gardeners at the Spring and Autumn Shows.
