March 5th Meeting

Our meeting on March 5th took the form of a Gardeners’ Question Time. It proved to be a great success with a very good attendance and some interesting questions. The panel, Peter Read, Sarah Studley and Steve Jeffries, each answered every question, with some differing opinions. Lots of information was given in a light-hearted and humorous way Another very enjoyable evening.

Ros Gant introduced the panel and gave the notices but then had to return home as Nottington village was on high flood alert.
