A couple of our recent Wednesday work parties have been curtailed by very wet weather, so we have tidied up the garage and cut up more logs for firewood. Veda and Viv have soldiered on in the rain, notwithstanding, clearing the riverside path in preparation for the snowdrop walk. When the weather has been kind, we have devoted some attention to our young trees, as here in Monkey Puzzle Dell (right), clearing undergrowth from around them and replacing chicken wire guards with larger ones if the tree has become constricted or removing them all together if the tree is mature enough.
We held our 16th AGM on Thursday 19th November. The meeting itself was preceded by a buffet supper with an excellent selection of savoury food and lots of desserts. Our Artistic Promotions Secretary, Jan, put together an exquisitely presented art display, using contributions from members, including turned wood bowls, textiles, photos, drawings and other crafts. Thank you to her and the contributors.
