President's Letter (Summer 2015)

Dear Members,
I enjoyed the annual dinner at The Golden Lion. It was good to meet so many people, old and new friends, and much nicer on a pleasant Spring evening. There was lots of conversation; everyone was swapping growing tips on how to win the President's Shield with the streptocarpus members were given when we went to Dibleys Nurseries.

I got tips from Rex Dibley himself on the finer points of a prize winning plant! So I am looking forward to judging all your plants at the August Show!

I am looking forward to visiting Eaton Hall; we are bound to get lots of ideas, and I can't wait to see the working areas of the garden. It will be a Grand Day Out.

I hope to see you on 13th June 2015 at the Village Hall for our Spring Show. The plant stall is just the place to buy plants that enjoy our local conditions, and the WI Cream Teas are hard to beat! There will also be the chance to enter one of the prize categories on the day; have a look at the Schedule on our website; there is something for all ages.

And do not forget the Main Show on 29th August 2015 at Darland Sports Centre. Unfortunately, due to building works, we are back in the Gymnasium this year, but we will still have a full programme of prize categories for you to enter and enjoy.

Happy Gardening!
