2016 ended with our annual Christmas Party. In spite of the inclement weather there was an excellent turnout. We had a great party with carols, quizzes, bingo, a raffle and, of course, excellent food and wine!! Thank you to everyone who helped in any way, and to all for the wonderful contributions of food and wine.

Our first meeting of the New Year involved a presentation on ‘Conifers’ by Andy Pedrick from Harvington . He brought along with him a huge collection of specimen plants which illustrated the enormous range of conifers. An ‘out and out’ enthusiast and expert who gave us advice on which conifers to choose for our own gardens and tips on how to care for them.

On Tuesday, February 14 our AGM will be preceded at 7pm by a talk on the ‘Restoration of New Place’ in Stratford upon Avon.
