The Society held a very successful Spring Show today. The number of visitors was up as was the number of exhibitors. Despite unforgiving spring weather there were plenty of flowers on show including some excellent daffodils. The cookery attracted an increase in entries, while the floral art was up to its usual high standard. Top prize money winners were P. Grimes £12.50, D. Woodcock £11, B. Robinson £11.

The Spring Show is on Saturday (7th April) so get any entries in to Christine by Tuesday.

Tonight’s talk on bees has been postponed until Thursday 22nd March, same place and time (Baptist Church Hall at 7.30 p.m.) due to the bad weather.
A reminder that the Annual General Meeting of the Society is at the Baptist Church at 7.30 on Thursday 25th January. Come along and have your say to shape the future of the Society.
The society held a very enjoyable Christmas lunch and trophy presentation on Sunday. The general feeling was that a lunchtime carvery works well and it is likely to be repeated next year. A big thank you to all who worked hard to make the tables look attractive, organised the menus and choices, polished trophies and made the presentations go smoothly, and those who contributed to and ran the raffle.
Our Christmas social/quiz night is the Thursday evening at the Baptist Church Hall, why not give it a go!
