AGM on the patio

Last night was our AGM, we sat outside under a clear sky framed by a magnificent Magnolia and a specimen yew.  The chiminea kept us warm,  the  babbling brook chattered behind us and bats flew over head as dusk descended.

We began with an informal walk around Denise’s garden, a most charming and well planted garden with views over meadows to one side and high old stone walls on the other.   Denise and her husband have, over the last two years, redeveloped part of the garden with the help of local garden designer, Angela Morley.  New elements in the garden include six prairie style borders, some new hedging, a secret ‘white’ garden and a wildflower meadow. 

Once all gathered back around the chiminea, cups of tea in hand, so the formal part of the evening began, led by Zena our chairperson.  Wendy presented the groups accounts followed by Angela and her secretary’s report.  All committee members were unanimously voted in again!  (A full report of the meeting can be seen upon request).
