The meeting will start with a short Annual General Meeting, with a report from the Chair, presentation of the accounts and answering any questions from the members/ Areport will be provided in advance of the meeting.

The speaker will be Josh Egan-Wyer who will talk about ‘Shrubs for Winter Interest’.  Josh will also be bringing plants to sell.

As Covid is rearing its head again, members are encouraged to wear masks in the church hall. If you have access to lateral flow tests it would be good if you could consider taking a test to make sure you are Covid-free. We will also provide hand sanitiser and ventilate as best we can. This may make the hall  cooler, so bring a jumper !
Refreshments will be provided as usual and there will be a raffle and competitions.

There are 2 categories for the competition. 

1. Autumn foliage – an arrangement in a vase.

2. A collection of squashes, gourds or pumpkins.

Entrants are allowed one entry per category. There will be a table set up for the exhibits and entrants will be given a piece of paper, on which to write their full name, to put under their entry.

All members are given 2 tokens, one token per category, to vote for their favourite exhibit.

We will also provide a table for plant sales in aid of our chosen charities. If you have potted up plants and have some spare, and are happy to donate their sale proceeds, please bring them along.
