200 members turned out this month despite the cold to enjoy our monthly meeting. A chance to meet up with old friends or make new ones.
Thanks to the members who again made the raffle do very well. As usual the star prize was a £50 M&S voucher
Following the safety notices and bad jokes by the Chairman the new Groups coordinator advised the members of latest information on some trips and meetings.
This months speaker was Mike Brown with a talk entitled Death in the Garden, this was not the latest Faith Brown book but a more horticultural matter.
The talk was a very interesting talk by Mike Brown, about the poisonous plants that can be found in our gardens, and their uses and miss uses throughout history. You will need to look differently at your hellebore's, foxgloves, poppies and monkshood this year as they flower (to mention but a few of the plants discussed) - luckily I’ve never been tempted to eat any of them anyway.'
