Quote of the Month

There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.

Announcement - its not Goodbye ...

It is with some regret that Carol and I wish to resign our position as organiser helpers of this wonderful club.

We are looking for volunteers to take over our roles of organisers, and to work with both Cindy and Judith in running the club. Our reasons for handing over to others, is because we both feel that we are running out of time and would like to devote more of our energy into the care and maintenance of our own garden. There is so much more that we have yet to do.

Also, we feel, that new faces will bring new ideas that can only benefit the club and make it better and stronger.

We would like this to take effect from the end of this year. So, please give it some consideration, and should anyone feel able to take on this role, please email  Cindy (cindyjones19@hotmail.com ) or Judith (sunley.judith@btinternet.com )

In the meantime we would like to thank everyone for the wonderful support you have shown over the last years. It is our greatest wish that the club should continue and prosper.

We will still be members of the club and would wish to attend meetings and garden visits.

Please give this your earnest consideration.

Thank you.

Carol and Greg.


My husband Tom and I came across the Axarquia Garden Club last year when we moved to Sayalonga, last June, on the recommendation of Terry and Jenny. We were keen to come along to meetings to make some new friends, to learn about gardening in a much hotter climate, and to visit member's gardens. And we have enjoyed the meetings very much since then.


It is hard to image meetings without Carol and Gregg at the helm, (pictured above at the Summer picnic) driving meetings forward, providing inspiration and horticultural expertise. But thankfully, they are still carrying on as club members.

I hope it isn't presumptuous as a new member for me to express thanks for everything Greg and Carol have done over the last 5 or so years, and of course there is plenty of time for members to express their own thanks.

So  now its time for some other members to step up to help us keep a lively programme of activities to continue the good work they have started.

So please get in touch...
