Hope everyone is keeping well and has enjoyed the lovely weather that we have had recently. Just to keep everyone updated regarding membership and what the Society plans to do over the next few months. As our membership year was brought to an early end and the shows and trips had to be cancelled, we thought it only fair to roll over 2019/2020 membership into the new horticultural year. Therefore if you are already a member, you membership will be automatically renewed for our new horticultural year which begins on 1st September.
At this stage we do not feel that it is safe to book speakers for our usual winter programme of talks, but plan to provisionally book some from January 2021 in the hope that it may be possible then. We also intend to rebook the coach trips that we had planned in the hope that these can run in 2021. Our Autumn Festival will not be able to go ahead, like the Summer Show, but we do plan to hold some virtual events and will keep you posted. The AGM will be deferred but we will still run the discounted seed order scheme and will circulate the catalogues in the autumn.
We would like to thank everyone who supported our annual plant sale and those who grew sunflowers and planted them out in front gardens and pots. Our gardens have brought us all great pleasure over the last few difficult months and I am confident, will continue to in our new horticultural year.
If you would like more details or to join us as new member, don’t hesitate to contact us.
