News and advice for younger members

Events in November: The AGM will be held in Christ Church Vision Hall at 7.30pm  on 14 November. The calling notice is given in the Yearbook.

Following the AGM business, there will be a statement about a proposed holiday next year with forms for members to  express interest in joining the party.  And after the interval we will enjoy a talk on the restoration of the Wimpole Hall Gardens by Philp Waites who has been Head Gardener there for 38 years. This will be of particular interest to those who went on our day trip to Wimpole Hall last year.


There are no new reports this month.

Spare copies of the Autumn Show Guide,  Yearbook and Weeders Digests are available in the Store on request.

The Winter edition of the Weeders Digest, covering events up to the AGM will be distributed from the end of November

Note that the Store will close for its Winter break on  25 November, reopening for the 2019 season on 3 February. Sales of bird food to keep them happy over the Winter break are expected to be high, so please don’t leave it to the last minute.
