We do not pretend to know all the answers but we are all passionate gardeners and are looking for other like-minded people to join our group and let us find answers to problems and learn together.
Meetings are on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. We will visit gardens as often as possible and questions to problems can be raised before afternoon tea. Share your garden problems, experiences and knowledge with us.
Our meeting for November was our Christmas Break-up Party, where 29 members and two spouses attended. This was held at the Breakwater Bar & Restaurant, upstairs. overlooking the Marina. The tables were set up in the festive theme with a gift box of sweets at each setting, from the club.
The meal was enjoyed by all and while waiting for the dessert, Sandra thanked all attending for an enjoyable year.
We had two lucky numbers and the first winner was Bev Woodward, who received a lovely hand turned wind chime, made and donated by Hector Keioskie. The second prize, – a gift pack of garden accessories and tools, was won by Julie Neal.
Sandra read out a couple of jokes that received a good laugh, and then she presented two lovely pot plants to Julie and Bev for their help throughout the year.
Members were reminded that there is no meeting in December or January.
Sandra wished everyone a safe trip home, an enjoyable Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year. Information about the February Meeting will be in the first newsletter for 2020 and hoped to see all in the new year.
