Autumn 2011 Newsletter
It was generally agreed that the Show this year was a success, even though the entries were down. “Bursting with Colour” was the heading in The Portsmouth News, with contributions described as superb in the report.
We would like to extend a big thank you to all concerned in whatever capacity on making the day a success.

A.G.M. Important Reminder
The Annual General Meeting is upon us again, it is to be held on the 30th November at 7.30pm in the United Reformed Church Elm Lane Havant. At our A.G.M. business is always kept to a minimum and attendees always enjoy refreshments and the cheery message from Brian Kidd, our President. The existing committee is willing to stand for another year but new blood is always welcome as well as ideas for the society to take up. We would like to see as many of you as we can at the meeting, as this is the time of year when you can have your say and tell us what subjects we can bring to you with our monthly speakers.
