NEWSLETTER – JANUARY/MARCH 2018

 

Dear Member

 

Happy New Year to everyone.

 

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New year. Here we are again at the start of another year. Time to make sure the seed orders are all done and the first seeds are planted. I wish you all the very best for a very happy and prosperous New Year.

 

Chairman

 

As you know I am stepping down as Chairman at the AGM in February, after 10 years. We still don’t have anyone to take on the role. If anyone is interested please let me know. I am worried that if no-one comes forward the Society will fold which would be such a shame. So please think if you would like to take on the leadership of the Society. If anyone is interested or knows of anyone that would ‘give it a go’ please give me a ring on 01244 379976.

 

Membership

 

It is that time of year again when our memberships are up for renewal. It would help Debbie, our membership secretary, a lot if you could fill in the slip on the reverse side of this newsletter and bring it with you to the meeting or fill in the slip and send your membership to her, along with a stamped addressed envelope so that she can send you the membership card and programme back to you.

 

 

Trips - RHS Chatsworth Show

 

We are going to go to Chatsworth on Saturday 9th June– the tickets are available now so if you had put your name down with Rita to go then please see her at the next meeting to get your ticket – the cost is £47. It should be a lovely day out.

 

 

Garden Trail

 

There is the possibility of having a Garden Trail again this year – if there is anyone willing to open their garden for us

please could you let me know. It is a popular event in the Society’s calendar, it is enjoyable for members and the garden owners alike. We have had a few kind people say they would open their gardens for us but we could do with some more. So, if you think you would like to do it then please let me know or if you would like to know more about what it entails then let me know and I can go through it with you. Thank you.

 

 

Spring Show

 

The Spring Show this year is on Saturday 31st March. Staging from 8.00am to 11.00am on Saturday morning.

The Classes are very similar to last year but the full Schedule will be out at the February meeting. If you have any questions in the meantime, please let me know.

There are children’s classes again this year, so any one with children or grandchildren have a look. The classes are fun to do and look good on the benches.

Don’t forget the challenges!!

 

 

And finally

 

I would just like to say a massive thank you to all the committee members who work so hard during the year to make sure our meetings and trips run smoothly. They all do a marvelous job. If you would like to join our committee to get a bit more involved in the running of the Society then please give me a ring on 01244 379976, it is not all hard work and we do have a good time.

 

I would also again like to thank all of you for all your support over the last 10 years, I really hope someone will come and take on the Chairman’s role so that our successful Society will carry on.

 

I wish you all a Happy New Year and see you at the AGM in February.

 

Wendy Carman

Chairman
