AGM and BULB SHOW 6th APRIL
A record number of members braved the biting wind to attend the Society’s Spring Bulb show and A.G.M. on 5th April. In spite of the late season, the Chairman, Brian Turbefield, described the beautiful display of daffodils as a “miracle”. He said that every year the members somehow managed to put on a wonderful display of Spring flowers. The Spring Bulb Show was won by April Janman with Jacki Combes second and Isobel Perry third
The A.G.M. elected Brian Turbefield as Chairman, Mandy Davis as Vice-Chairman, Mary Thrasher as Treasurer and Mandy Davis as Secretary. Committee members re-elected were April Janman, Lynda Marsh, Gaye Douglas and Steve Thomas. A new member, Jane Ledbrooke, joined the committee.
The Treasurer, Mary Thrasher, presented the financial report and pointed out that each year the costs and expenses increased but last year our income did not keep up with these. Members were urged to support all money raising events so that the Society could continue to engage first class speakers for the monthly meetings.
At our next meeting on Friday 3rd May, Peter Chivers will give advice on “Colourful Hanging Baskets and Containers”.
Our plant sale will be on Saturday 11th May
