Next Talk 

26th January
Peter Collett – Fruit growing in small gardens. Please try to come to what should be a very interesting talk, of late the attendance at our monthly talks has been so low that it has been embarrassing!

23rd February
Dr. Ann Coates – Porters Garden

30th March
Sarah Coles – Gardening for Older People

Store
The store will be open again at the end of this month. Even though the weather does not make you think of gardening at the moment, please think about your future needs and patronise the store, we need your custom!

Wisley Tickets
There are two pairs of tickets for entry to the gardens at Wisley, which will admit one member and a guest with a reduction of 30%. The ticket will allow admittance to all the other Royal Horticultural Society gardens. If you would like to borrow a ticket, please contact Viv Costall at the Store.

Tsunami Appeal
Throughout the year Gwen Burroughs has been selling plants at our monthly meetings and she has sent £50 from these sales to the Disaster Fund in our name. Many thanks to Gwen for her splendid effort and to all of you who bought her plants, I’m sure that you will be delighted that your money has gone to such a deserving cause.

This is your society, please get involved by coming to the talks, joining the Committee, sending contributions to the Newsletter, helping with the Show, using the Store or in any other way that you can. Any suggestions or contributions to Biddy Wylie (02392) 475226.
