Notice – Arthur Shepperdson

It is with sadness that we wish to inform everyone of the passing of long time club member Arthur Shepperdson. Arthur held many club records over the years and won various gardening awards from the clubs he was involved in. Arthur will be best remembered by our club members for getting so many of us into the growing of Giant English Green Marrows. In  2012 Arthur grew a very large 102 pound marrow, which the seed from, is used by most members today to try to better Arthur’s achievement.  Always the avid competitor this year Arthur took first prize in our Open Vegetable Class.
With a smile as big as the great outdoors and a passion for gardening Arthur would not let anything stop him from growing the biggest and the best. His love of  gardening  was infectious to all those around him and he truly loved the challenge of Giant Vegetables.
To his wife  Lillian and his family we offer our condolences and know that he will be missed by his fellow gardeners.
