It was horrible weather outside but it didn’t deter 30 people from attending. The evening started off with the presentations of the trophy’s to members who won awards and gave great support to the summer show. This was followed by the A.G.M and each of the officers gave their report starting with our treasurer who said that the club was in a good position financially in spite of a lower attendance at the show and less entries. It was suggested and agreed that entry to the show by the public should rise to £2 and members show entries to rise to 30p per entry. Our chairman then gave a resume of the years events and all agreed the speakers had been interesting and the trip to East Bergholt a great success. It was then time for the election of officers and it was really good news that we had 3 new members plus a volunteer to take over the website and someone to book the speakers for 2024. It was also announced that there were changes to the Schedule, in that show dates had been changed and also some of the classes had been reduced. We then had a garden quiz run by John wells who divided us into 2 teams, Pansies and Daisies. Some of the questions were quite hard but when we had a question about songs with flowers in them one of our members broke into song joined by other members with much hilarity and that set the scene for more singing. After Tea, mince pies and shortbread the quiz continued, easier this time and the final result was that the daisies won helped a great deal by a very clever lady. A lovely fun filled evening and everyone went home with a smile on their face. We will all meet again for the social on January 18th 2023.
