Diary Dates

2022 Events                







Listed below are events that ar currently scheduled to take place in 2022 which will have sweet pea and NSPS connections. Once again this year we invite you to include them in your leisure activities by making them a “day out”. Sadly all live events in 2020 were cancelled but there were some live events in 2021.

2019 and 2921 events were all interesting and successful and I am sure you will enjoy them in future. They are often more enjoyable when you participate in them. If you are a member your help and assistance is always welcome. If you feel you would like to be involved, please contact me and I will give you the details julia.nsps@outlook.com  07997950014

We often require support on the day/days before the events and also at the closure. These events are our Society’s shop window to the public and we often enrol new members at them. If you already a member please support our Society by helping, or at least visiting some of them. Non-members are welcome to visit all events.

You will enjoy it!
