Excellent start to our Diamond Jubilee year

Sue and Peter Russell gave an excellent presentation on “Perfume in the Garden”. We recommend them to other groups for their very informative, enlightening talk and the photo’s illustrating the points made.

We discussed our year ahead and look forward to longer ,hopefully drier days. We wished the members who are having some ill-health a quick improvement. The thought of our trip to Tenby in May was uplifting on a cold dark night. The members brought in some lovely entries for our Monthly competitions and we congratulate them on the high standard.

On February 15th we have Sheena Crossley talking about “Making Maximum use of a Small Garden”. Come and join us at £7:50 per member at present for the year, we think that is very good value for money.

Happy gardening to you all and be careful you do not develop “Web Feet” !
