Our July speaker was Mick Poultney, speaking to us on the benefits of raised beds and no dig. He also described his allotment successes due to using his compost and no dig techniques.

The next meeting will be Michael Myers on August 25th, talking about Favourite Gardens of Yorkshire. Michael is a  nationally known gardening expert and speaker.

Please Note: The September Speaker is John Summerfield speaking on Ornamental Grasses, who has kindly replaced Adam Pasco, as he could no longer join us.

Your Club Needs You! Having retired from shows, and in the Covid delayed process of handing over the reins to Allan and Nikki, Bill and Jean have been persuaded to return to the Committee for as an interim to run  this year’s September Show only. Allan and Nikki had an unexpected opportunity to fulfil their ambition to move to Scotland, which they have sensibly taken. We are all very grateful for all their work so far and also to Bill and Jean for stepping into the breach. However, the Club needs new Show Organisers.  There is always a great amount of help to present both the Daffodil and September Shows, but it needs at least one person to co-ordinate and run. Could that be you or your group of friends?  Plenty of support will be available.

I am also appealing for general members on the Committee to replace those that have/are soon to step down. Please come forward – we only meet for about an hour each month.

Pauline, our Travel Secretary is very keen to make everyone aware that due to the difficulty of booking coaches, all trips will now have to be paid for TWO months prior to departure. 

Pauline is now in the throes of booking a trip to Newby House for the Harrogate Autumn Show. Contact Pauline (or any committee member with details on Membership Card) asap if you would still like to be included.

 * Date for your Diary:  November 18tha Christmas outing to Burton Agnes.  The price for Coach, Event and Hall will be £27.50, payable in September.

Teas, coffee and orange juice are now being served. The raffle is also there as usual, with grateful thanks to Lynda and Pat.

Has Linda (Membership Secretary) got your email address should we need to tell you of any last minute change? Please check with her. 

 PLEASE LOOK AT THIS WEBPAGE AND AT YOUR EMAILS TO CHECK WHAT IS HAPPENING BEFORE COMING TO ANY MEETING.  The safety and well being of the membership at the present time is still paramount and we must adhere to the Government Guidelines. If these should change then we will inform you, as quickly as possible, if these changes affect future Speaker Meetings, by email and on this website.

This year’s -2022- Charity is the LINCS AND NOTTS AIR AMBULANCE.

Due to the need to keep the medical team at Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance covid-free, they were unable to come to the meeting to promote this year’s charity. Nicky gave a short account of their work and the cost of keeping the ambulance flying, all done through voluntary donations and with no government funding.

 

Fire Regulations restrict numbers in the hall but provided we have fewer than 100 people, (we average 85) you will be welcome to come and  join us.
