After a most successful Christmas party following Stephen Lacey’s talk it is time to look forward to the year ahead. The committee hope that the programme we have lined up for you this year will be as satisfying or even better than last year.
Hosting the ‘Summer Gardens Day’ will be a challenge as well as a lot of fun. Working together as a group is a great way to get to know other members and is what makes our society gel. Annie’s plea for help bore some fruit, which is very gratifying. As a result this will be the last newsletter I shall be producing.
Marion Jay has very kindly offered to take over and of course she will be exploring new ways of presentation, we may even end up with some coloured pages. This is my 13th edition—I did not realise I had been doing it for so long. It’s been a real learning curve.
