ST MABYN GARDEN CLUB

The 2011 April AGM was held in March with a very good attendance of members. Venning Davey kindly agreed to continue as President for the forthcoming year. John Lobb was unanimously re-elected as Chairman.as were Vice-Chair Fiona Murpy, Treasurer Anne Caldwell and Secretary Angela Bunney. After the business of the AGM had been completed members Joanne and Colin Hyde gave us a treat by showing their colourful slides of their holiday in New Zealand. The pictures captured the beauty of this country and the vast tracts of emptiness New Zealand has to offer. Many thanks to Jo and Colin for such an interesting evening.

For our May meeting we were very lucky to get Wadebridge’s own Adrian Langdon, who is well known for his photography and knowledge of Cornwall’s wildlife. His slides on the Camel Estuary varied from otters to birds to badgers, even to a very large basking shark just off the coast. I particularly liked the birds in flight. Adrian accompanied his slides with information and some very amusing anecdotes. (If you happen to come across Adrian don’t forget to ask him about his wildlife encounter on Rough Tor!) Tea and biscuits were then served by the tea hostesses whose work every month is greatly appreciated by the thirsty members.

The Garden Club is on holiday until Wednesday 14 September when we shall be going to Marsh Villa Gardens in Par, St Austell. Members to meet 9.30 am at the bus stop shelter and take own cars. This is a morning trip as it will give members
the opportunity to spend the whole day out elsewhere if they wished. We start our meeting in St Mabyn Hall Wednesday 12 October with a visit from George Kestell on Propagation. Should be very interesting.

For more details about anything above please contact the secretary Angela Bunney on 01208 841511.. Please note annual subscription is still only £5 .
