Report from the AGM

The 2013 Annual General Meeting was held this week with 60+ members attending.  The Chairman, Tim Nichols reported on another successful year even with a drop in membership numbers.  Our finances remain healthy with sufficient funds to celebrate our Diamond Jubilee year.

All officers were re-elected and all but one committee members were voted to stand again. Margaret Ellwood resigned from the committee and was thanked for her work during the last year by the Chairman. Two new committee members were elected, Chad Stone and Alby Berry, and then welcomed onto the team.

The new programme was available with new membership cards and it looks like Carol Beer has done a grand job in booking a wonderful array of speakers for our evening talks.  Monica Seatherton and the sub-committee have planned some interesting garden visits which when put together with the special jubilee events, 2013 should be a year to remember!

Happy Gardening everyone!
