Another successful year for the Club was acknowledged by the Chairman, Ted Ashley at its AGM and Bulb Show.
A wide variety of topics had been covered in talks given by excellent speakers at the monthly meetings held in The Millenium Memorial Hall, Littleton. Well attended, enjoyable group visits to Arundel Castle Gardens and Denmans Gardens and to the Wisley Flower Show had been organized by Philip Wallis, and many people visited the Club’s stall at the Littleton and Harestock Show.
The Bulb Show follows the meeting, and despite the mild winter and some bulbs being early there were 103 entries across 11 separate classes, all of a high standard, much as last year. The Bulb Show judge was Wilf Simcox assisted by stewards Philip Ross and Hazel Booth. The winner, Richard Macer received the Anne Wiggle Trophy.
Scores are given at each monthly meeting for floral items placed by members on the Spotlight Table, organized by Clive Felstead. The winners were
1st. Sally Macer, who gets next year’s membership free.
2nd=. Richard Macer.
2nd=. Hazel Booth.
4th. June Forni.
The Club meets at 7.30pm on the third Wednesday of the month, and welcomes visitors and new members. Our Web Master, Brian Holloway, has created a splendidly colourful and informative new website.
