For an A.G.M. we had a very good turn out. Perhaps it was the thought of scones, homemade jam and Clotton clotted cream that was the attraction. The business part of the meeting passed efficiently and with no problems.
Next we had jars of plants at our tables and had to try to name a plant for each letter of the alphabet plus a jar with 6 plants with 1st letters which spelled garlic and then, giving Latin names for 6 plants/trees, gave an anagram of Dickens from their 1st letters. What an enormous amount of work our chairman had gone to in the organisation of this. We all enjoyed it even though we had difficulty and were too exhausted to concentrate our next task!
Following the quiz we were all given a phormium leaf and instructions for making a flower. Even though I had done this before mine looked more like a shovel! There were some very unusual looking flowers around but there were some successes.
Supper followed and lived up to expectations. This evening was a good chance to chat with friends before our break for the summer. A special thank you to the committee members who provided flowers for the raffle.
Our next meeting will be the 2nd Wednesday in September. Please watch for the announcement towards the end of August or early September.

The bridges are the end result but it is the river landscape, the marshes, and, above all, the prehistoric people that set the pattern for thousands of years. However, there is little evidence apart from logs during work on...
