General Meetings of the Redlands Orchid Society Inc are held at 7.30pm on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at Donald Simpson Centre 172 Bloomfield Street Cleveland. Visitors welcome.
Also a friendly group meets on the 1st Saturday morning each month in members’ gardens to learn more about caring for Orchids and have a chat and a cuppa.
Each year an Autumn & Spring Charity Show is held at the Donald Simpson Centre, with beautiful flowers on display and a large variety of Orchids for sale. Our charity is the Redland Hospital Auxiliary; they have their craft stall at our shows.
2016 is our 45th Anniversary Year. On 12 July 1971 a meeting was held in order to form an orchid society in the Redlands area. On the 17th August, the first official meeting, attended by about 30 people, moved that the name of the society be known as the Redlands Orchid Society and moved that a small sub-committee be formed to draw up the constitution and keep it as simple as possible. To this day we try to keep it simple and friendly for our members.
On the 4th December1986, The Redlands Orchid Society received a Certificate of Incorporation of an Association to become The Redlands Orchid Society Inc. In the last 45 years the Society has had many venues for our meetings and shows and has maintained its enthusiasm and versatility regarding the growing, flowering and displaying of many varieties of orchids. Looking forward may our Society continue to grow and transform into a source of knowledge and comradeship for all members, whether they be old or new to the Society.
