Membership Information

Frittenden is a village of about 900 people, set in the Low Weald of Kent.  We are beset with sticky clay soil, which, while wet and solid, is full of nutrients.  Once improved, it is a wonderfully fertile growing medium for fruits, flowers, trees and vegetables.  Formerly a strong hop-growing area, Frittenden has always been a good place to grow top fruit (apples and cherries in particular), and gardeners here get good crops of soft fruit too, while flowering shrubs, trees and roses do very well.  Although it can be a little colder in Frittenden compared with the surrounding landscape, our perennials and annuals also make a good show, and spring bulbs are beautiful everywhere.  The parish is quite heavily wooded, and natural displays include bluebells, wild cherry and carpets of wood anemones, not to mention the ubiquitous primroses.

Frittenden is a friendly village with a large number of local societies, and we welcome newcomers to the Society, which numbers about 90 members.
