• The Garden Club AGM was well attended.
  • We had a good discussion about how we move forward.
  • Everyone wants the Club to continue
  • Jane Pearson will not be continuing as Secretary for reasons we all understand. She and Andrew will remain Members
  • Jane was thanked by everyone and was presented with a very nice bottle by Bridget

As a result of the request for new volunteers Bridget will take responsibility for arranging visits with the help of Norman and Jane Hudson. Other Members are asked to help with ideas and recruiting potential new Members.
The point was made that guests are always welcome to our visits and meetings

The final copy of the Programme for 2019 is shown below
As you will see from the Programme, our first meeting is rather special:

We are invited to The Manor to an illustrated talk by Charlie McCormick to see pictures of, and hear about, his garden in Dorset
It is on Wednesday, April 24th at 7.30pm
The Manor is a lovely place to meet and, knowing Bridget’s reputation for hospitality, I have no doubt there will be some liquid refreshment.

All are welcome. No charge for Members. £3 for visitors and guests

The membership sub, which covers the cost of all visits and meetings, remains at £5
