We have three events planned for December the first of which will be held next Wednesday.

Monthly Meeting 3/12/08

We start with our regular monthly meeting on Wednesday, 3rd December at Shine Indian in ơlış starting at 2pm. 

The meeting will include our pre-AGM discussion, the programme for January – May 2009 will be presented and we’ll watch the first episode of Monty Don’s ‘Around the World in 80 Gardens’. 

The Club has acquired the DVD of the whole Monty Don series, ten one-hour episodes.  In the first film which will be shown at this meeting he visits five gardens in Mexico and Cuba – so lots of plants that will work here should be on show. 

We hope there will time left for a discussion of the film after we’ve viewed it.

Gardening Club Christmas Quiz 17/12/08

Then we hold our annual Gardening Club Christmas Quiz on Wednesday 17th December at Köşem Restaurant in Fethiye. 

The Quiz will start at 8.30pm and you can either come earlier and eat, or just turn up for the Quiz and buy a drink. 

The Quiz master will, of course, be David ‘Firm but Fair’ Groom and prizes are two bottles of wine for the first and second teams. 

This year the wine is the red we tasted at September’s meeting (well worth winning) and maximum team size is four people.

Festive Frolics 19/12/08

Finally, new for this year and the idea of our Treasurer Stuart, a Gardening Club Christmas Gathering at 1881 (Suat’s Place) Restaurant on the beach in Koca ơlış on Friday 19th December. 

There will be live music and the meal is an open buffet with a set price of 15YTL. 

Turn up from 7.30pm onwards and kick off your Christmas early with Fethiye Times Gardening Club.

Hope to see lots of you at all our December gatherings.
