2005 Autumn Newsletter

Summer Show
This year’s show was much more successful, the visitor numbers were up and there were no road works for a change! The hall was a mass of colour and we have had a lot of comments saying how nice it all looked. Also, we only made a very small loss, which pleased the Treasurer!

The total number of members making an entry was slightly down on last year, please think ahead and see if we do better next year.

Many thanks to Geoff Tanton for being such an efficient Show Manager and to Biddy Wylie for keeping control of the entries. Geoff would like to thank all the helpers and stewards who worked so hard to make the show run smoothly.

Notice of the A.G.M.
This will be held on Wednesday 30th November at 7pm. It is vitally important that as many members as possible attend as one of the points to be raised is the increase in the membership from £2 to £3.

We are very short of Committee members at just 5 at the moment, so please think very seriously about being a more active member and joining us on the committee. Let us know at the A.G.M. if you would like to stand.

Sadly Missed
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Mrs Mary King, who was a very active member of the Society for many years. She will be missed.
