AGM, trophy & photography

Trophy presentation, AGM & photography talk by Roger Preston

The evening started by presentation of the Trophy’s to all the worthy winners from the Grand Flower and Vegetable show held in August. They represented the best flower and vegetable growers, including a wonky vegetable, exquisite needlework, cookery, flower arrangements and photography.

Then followed the AGM, when new members were voted on to the committee and the existing members agreed to serve another year. Finances were all in order following the treasures report. Our President and Chairman thanked everyone for their help during the year particularly with setting up the shows.

We then had a really interesting and informative talk by Roger Preston, who judges the photography class, and gave us many useful hints on how to compose a photograph. We learnt about the rule of thirds, lines finishing in a corner, straight horizons and so much more.

It was a talk enjoyed by everyone and educational as well.

It is with great sadness that one of our staunchest members have died. Our sympathies go to his family and partner Marion.

Allotment Sharing

One of our members has 2 large allotments at St Margaret Road site in Lowestoft which he shared with his late mother and her partner. He has tried to keep them going but is finding it difficult on his own. He finds gardening very therapeutic and having suffered from cancer himself he wondered if other members who have had similar experiences could join him on his allotments where they could share experiences and socialise together. Without a team to help him he will have to give up the allotments but feels it would be beneficial to all concerned to work together. For more information please complete the contact form.

Changes to membership fees

It has been agreed by both the members and the committee that the membership fee will increase to £10 per annum, In order to get good speakers we need to increase our income, speakers costs have also increased as have their travelling costs. The entrance fee will remain at £1.00 with first time guest free of charge.
