Revised Summer  PROGRAMME   2021


Dear Members

After such a challenging winter and a frosty spring we’re all hoping for better times ahead. As the lockdown eases, we’ve arranged several events which we hope you’ll enjoy. Our only source of revenue is the Plant Market which funds everything we do. Please support us by contributing your spare plants and your time if you can. It will be great to see you all again!


DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Accounts will be attached to this bulletin for all Members. 

There will be a meeting for members at the Bassett Rooms, Ashover on
