Events update: reports on events over the summer months will appear in the next edition.  The President’s Evening at The Bressingham Gardens was a great success – thank you to Adrian Bloom and his team for making us so welcome and for a superb buffet.


A booking form for the AGM buffet was in the summer edition and is also available on our website, including an option to purchase places on-line.


Events for 2020: we are working on a few coach outings with Avanti.  There will be a three day trip from 17-19 September 2020, with two nights’ bed, breakfast and evening meal at The Parsonage Hotel, York.  This will include one day at the Autumn Show at Harrogate and a visit to York Gate, with the remainder of the itinerary to be confirmed.


We are also planning a similar length trip in mid-February, visiting Ashwood Nurseries and Garden and Colesbourne Gardens.  Provisional dates for this are 18/20 February.  A full update will appear in the next journal.  We still need a new Events Secretary to take this role forward in 2020.
