Sunningwell and District
Following our Early Autumn Newsletter here is the Late Autumn Newsletter!
In October, we enjoyed an evening with Darren Lerigo, a director of Modern Mint, who both entertained and educated us about gardening matters in his talk “What to do with that Space”. Did you know that commercial bulb growers dip their bulbs in fungicide? Yes, obviously, but did you realise that this gives the pollinating bees a minute dose of toxins every time they visit one of the flowers? Definitely a point to consider when planting bulbs. “Organic is best” is Darren’s message.
Christmas Social evening: this is on Saturday 2nd December and we have already started taking names. The cost is £10 a head. We would like names (and money) at the November meeting, please.
As usual, we will provide the food, and you provide your own choice of drink (and glasses).
And in the New Year, the 2018 AGM will be on Thursday 11th January, with seasonal refreshments after the business part. We already have a group of interesting speakers lined up for next year but now is the time to start thinking of what else you would like to see included in the programme.
