Monthly Meeting Report for September 2019

Graham Jermyn, the Chairman, opened the meeting attended by 107 people including 5 guests and 6 new members.

  • Graham introduced Philip and Gillian Evans who provided a short and entertaining presentation inviting people to express interest and support in setting up a group to rescue the seedling trees that grow in all kinds of places, to pot them on and then look for places to plant them when they are ready. More details will follow.
  • The September newsletter has been posted and emailed out to Members with a few copies available in the foyer. Anyone ho didn’t receive the attachment to the email, please contact Jim savage, Membership Secretary and he will email another copy.
  • There is a change is speaker for October 16th. Our own Chris Greenhill was due to speak next year on the subject of Monitoring Norwich Prison but has swapped with Mu Gurbutt. Members may recall the interesting talk by the magistrate Graham Higgins a few months ago and this will be an interesting sequel.
