AGM and Christmas Party - Thursday 12th December 2019
Gardening Society AGM - Thursday 12th December 2019
Unlike most AGMs, that for the Gardening Society, was well attended.
More than 50 people arrived on a very wet and windy General Election night.
Drinks were provided by the Society and food by the members.
The finances were adjudged healthy and the future programme of events promised much to look forward to.
We had news of two more trophies to be awarded next year.
The first, a beautifully engraved crystal vase for the "Best in Show" at the Spring Show - provided by our Hon Vice President, Hugh Buckhurst.
The second was the NGS "Silver Trowel" to be awarded to the most liked garden at the NGS Open Gardens event in the Summer.
An unchanged committee was re-elected and then the main business of the night could start - the Christmas Party!
Conversation and socialising went on apace before the gathering reluctantly departed home - feeling quite relaxed!
Coffee Morning and Plant Sale - October 2019
Gerry Newman - Bulb Meister!
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.
