Annual General Meeting followed by a talk by Bob Coutts on winter pruning.

This was an extraordinary annual general meeting as the committee had decided to change the name of the society. They were concerned about the decrease in members and the closure of Beccles and Halesworth gardening clubs. It was felt that the name horticultural society gave the impression that it was  only for professional gardeners, and Oulton Broad and Lowestoft suggested that members could only join from those areas. The members were asked to vote and were given 3 options.

  1. Keep the same name.
  2. Oulton Broad & Lowestoft gardening club.
  3. Waveney  gardeners club.

Those that did not attend were sent a postal vote with a briefing by Sheila Pettett regarding the newly designed website. Votes would be counted on December 1st.

Following this Bob Coutts then gave a very interesting talk on winter pruning.
