The event was a great success. Attendance was good, in spite of competition from the Rugby World Cup!
A big thank you to members who donated cakes for sale and prizes for the raffle.
The sale of bulbs went well – including the competition bulbs for next years Spring Show, so we can expect a good display in April!
Our nominated Charity is “Odyssey” this year and we expect to be able to send them a good donation as a result. (Odyssey helps people with cancer regain confidence and their enjoyment of life)
Deposits for our 2020 trip to Lincoln were healthy and probably mean that the list will be closed quite soon.
The Fifth Trust brought lots of colourful plants for sale and did a brisk trade.
Tickets for our Annual Dinner in November were in demand – those attending will be able to hear Steve Edney, of The Salutation, talking about his successes at Chelsea and Hampton Court.
