Here we are on the cusp of 2016 and looking forward to our first group meeting of the year, this Saturday, January 2nd. We welcome our guest speaker Richard Ayres who has a superb double snowdrop named after him, giving a clue as to the subject of his talk.
For forty-one years, Richard was a gardener at Anglesey Abbey, twenty-seven of which he spent as Head Gardener. He was responsible for the introduction of the snowdrop collection and assisted in the creation of the famous Winter Walk. Since retiring from that position he has designed gardens at Kirtling Tower and Sawston Hall. Richard is an Associate of Honour of the RHS. His talk is entitled ‘Snowdrops and Winter Interest’.

Not able to make this first meeting. I am a prospective new member but have to go and look after my daughter who has just had surgery. I will be at the next meeting though. Sad to miss snwdrop talk by an expert.
Nice to hear from you Jill – see you at the February meeting. Bill & Marion at 84 Valley Road.
