At this month’s AGM, we said goodbye to Jaki Moorhouse, our President for the last 2 years. We will miss Jaki’s lively enthusiasm and thank her for keeping the club very “Interesting”. I have personally enjoyed working with her and will miss her very much. The rest of the hard working committee have all agreed to stand again with me as President. We will do our best to entertain you and give you value for your subscriptions.
After the AGM, we were treated to a reminder of some of the Highlights of last year, very skilfully put together by Meryl Evans.
On 12th April, Nikki Penaluna will talk about “Bees in a changing World”. Nikki is passionate about the environment and will tell us what, we as gardeners, can do to encourage and protect bees.
The Rose and Vegetable groups will commence meeting again in April; under the new leadership of Carelle Sherwood and Joy Collett respectively. We thank Sheila Harris and Helen Harrison for nurturing these groups for many years.
I think we can safely say that spring has finally arrived and I wish you all very happy gardening.
Cilla Pickett, IGC President
