INTRODUCTION

Welcome to KFHS - About Us

The Federation, formed in 1938, was originally composed of societies from Kent. Since 2001 however, several societies from East Sussex, and more recently clubs from Surrey and Greater London, have been welcomed, bringing our present membership to around 200 affiliated societies, clubs and organisations. There are also a large number of individual members, many of whom are enthusiastic Speakers and Judges involved in numerous horticultural and other related activities throughout the South East.

 

Things have changed beyond recognition since the foundation of the Federation. Although people now have far more leisure time, they also have the opportunity to use it in ways undreamed of by our forebears. However, gardening is as popular as ever, even though today's gardens tend to be smaller. The Federation is dedicated to supporting all those people involved in the many aspects of horticulture.

 

It attempts to do this in a variety of ways:

 

 

*

Provide societies with up-to-date lists of Judges and Speakers

*

Publish Newsletters, which endeavour to be informative

*

Arrange a Summer Show held in conjunction with the Kent County Show at Detling, and an Autumn Show at Ditton Community Centre, ME20 6AH, both providing additional Domestic and Craft competitions

*

Organising a popular fund raising 100 Plus Club monthly draw

*

When requested, providing a Judges` Training Scheme

*

Make this website available to all Members and Member Societies to use as a Noticeboard

*

Arranging occasional social events such as Quizzes and Members` Days

*

Maintaining a good relationship with specialist horticultural companies and societies in the South

*

Benefiting from the Federation's affiliation to The Royal Horticultural Society

If your society or club are not affiliated to the Federation and you would like to know more, we would be delighted to hear from you
