About Us

Our Society was founded in 1967 and has around 90 members.

We meet in January (3rd Tuesday), February (1st Tuesday), March
through July (1st and 3rd Tuesdays), September through November
(1st Tuesday) and December (2nd Tuesday) at 7.00pm for 7.30pm
in the Conservative Club, 42 Billing Road, Northampton NN1 5DA
(map) and about 45 people usually attend.   We have a wide variety 
of speakers, not always talking about fuchsias.

The third Tuesday meetings are Care & Culture meetings where advice
is given on how to grow your fuchsias.

During the summer months we organise a number of day trips to places of
interest.  We also usually organise a long weekend away in April/May
and a longer break further afield in August/September.

Our biggest event of the year is an Annual Fuchsia Show which this year, the 50th Anniversary Show, will be held at the Conservative Club, 42 Billing Road, Northampton NN1 5DA on Saturday 5th August 2017 from 11.00am to 4.00pm.

We are a friendly group and visitors are always welcome.  Membership

for 2017/18 is £12.00 for a single person and £20.00 for a double membership.
