The Chairman reported that membership numbers had fallen slightly over the year as several members had moved away. From feedback received the monthly talks and arranged trips had been enjoyed. The Treasurer outlined the club’s finances and confirmed support was needed at the forthcoming fundraising event “Fun & Flair with Flowers”.
The cost of speakers and their mileage allowance has been increasing and therefore it was necessary to increase the subscription rate – the first increase in over five years. All committee members agreed to stand again and were re-elected en-bloc and a new committee member, Tessa Pembleton was welcomed onto the team.
The Chairman thanked the committee and co-opted members for all their hard work over the past year.
After the AGM members enjoyed a horticultural quiz. Questions ranged from General Horticultural Knowledge to Gardening Anagrams to Gardener’s World Presenters – our “Leetle Grey Cells” as the Belgium Detective would say, were certainly tested !
Thank you Ewelina for arranging the quiz
