DIARY 2024


Next Meeting Wed. 14th  February  starting at 2.30pm. Judging the images submitted by members to decide which will be entered in to the British Orchid Council Photographic Competition. Many thanks to those who sent in their  orchid images; I now have a good selection to create a Power Point a presentation. Hopefully we will have a nice selection of orchids on display so that after tea/coffee we can have a good table talk. Remember it does not have to be star plants; it can be helpful to bring along problem plant to ask how it can be helped.

March 13th Meeting will be our first of the year with a visiting guest speaker. David Menzies will be coming down from Scotland; he has often given presentations at the society and his talks have always been popular. This talk will be about -

Orchids of Australia.

April 10th Meeting Looking at all the images from the British Orchid Council Photographic Competition and selecting our favourites. All societies will submit their choices and  the top three images will probably be announced in July.
