About the Society & Contact Details

ABOUT THE SOCIETY


Ewhurst is a picturesque small village situated at the foot of the Surrey Hills, approximately 3 miles from Cranleigh and 12 miles from Guildford.


The Society was founded in 1881 by the Rector of Ewhurst and Walther Webb, a local solicitor. Its aims were largely philanthropic with the objective of encouraging villagers to improve their diet by growing good vegetables. The Head Gardeners of the big houses in the locality set an example by exhibiting at the show. Originally there was only one annual show held in August, which swiftly became an important social event in what was then a small agricultural village. The show originally included other amusements and races for both children and adults and in its early days the annual show was attended by the gentry including the local MP.


Currently 3 shows are held each year: Spring; Summer and Autumn. In addition to the shows there are 4 talks each year, which aim to be both entertaining and instructive, a Plant Sale in May, and a Quiz Evening in January.  We also arrange a  garden visit to a local garden each summer.


The Society welcomes new members and visitors to all the Society's events.   If you are not already a member of Ewhurst Horticultural Society, why not join us?
