A.G.M. Report and May Activities

Our A.G.M. was very well attended and the business went smoothly. All Officers remain in their positions and we were very pleased to welcome Sara Warren on to the committee. It is good to have an injection of fresh ideas from time to time.

Hazel Street was presented with the Mary Middlemass Plate for gaining the highest number of points throughout the year in the Flower/Plant of the Month competitions. The Plate is beautifully hand-painted and was presented by the late Mary several years ago.

The Members’ Mini-Show added lovely Spring colour to proceedings and was judged by Mark Read. Winner of the best exhibit was a tub of tulips grown by Terry Gant. All out and of the same height! Quite an achievement.

On 25th April we are visiting Poundbury Garden Centre for a talk and shopping evening. All purchases will attract a 25% discount. Meet in the Engine Room for coffee/tea at 6.45pm prior to the talk. There will be free delivery for any bulky purchases.

Our meeting on May 2nd will be a talk on House Plants given by The Gardens Group Gold Club.

May 11th sees our annual Plant Sale at the Upwey Memorial Hall, Victoria Avenue. The sale starts at 2pm and we are setting up from 1.15pm. If you would like a table or have plants that need collecting, please ring Shaun on 812473 or Ros on 814887. Full details on the Plant Sale link on the home page.
