HATHERLEIGH GARDENING CLUB - February 21 

On Thursday, 21st February, we will be holding our AGM. In a change from the norm, I have booked our group visit to Rosemoor for the same day, meeting there at 11am. I am hoping that we can grab a coffee and have a quick chat about the forthcoming year before you all wander off to enjoy Rosemoor's renowned 'winter garden'. Should the weather prove to be horrendous on that day, we will reschedule the visit but still have the AGM, probably at Hayes Barton, Jacobstowe, by kind invitation of Mike and Di Stamp. We will be pleased to welcome new members who will also be included in the Rosemoor visit. Look forward to seeing you all there. Susan Gill Location EX20 3JN
