We have established close links with local retailers of horticultural interest most of whom give generous discounts on production of a current AHS membership card, for which we thank them.

We are also linked to other similar groups in South Lakeland which leads to major awards in this wider field. For several years we have been affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society, The Lakeland Horticultural Society (Holehird) and The National Dahlia Society which gives rise to a very colourful display at the Annual Show.
Perhaps our most significant link is with Arnside National School with whom we have developed a warm and friendly routine. For some years we have given all the children a growing kit of bulbs, pots and compost which leads to our coveted Junior AHS Award for the winner. Individual Year teachers have shown ingenuity in devising innovative craft creations for display at our Spring Show which are followed by prize giving events in School.
The Arnside Gateway is a website with useful links to key Arnside sites, local groups and societies and other local information.
