Next meeting:

Tuesday 27th February to be held at The Old Witta School. The morning will commence at 9.30am with morning tea followed by our PANEL DISCUSSION. Members are asked to send in their topical questions to present to our panel of “experts”. These can be emailed to betteweston@bigpond.com or given to Harvey in writing before the start of the meeting. We would like active member participation in this session.
Please bring a compact chair and a cup for morning tea.

Chairs at meeting:

Due to increased attendance from new members, space for chairs is becoming a concern at general meetings. In an effort to manage the best use of space, the committee would ask members who bring the wide slingback chairs to bring regular folding chairs instead. If you do not have regular folding chairs, you may like to use the chairs stacked against the side wall of the undercroft. If care is taken over row spacing we can make the most of the space we have. Many thanks for your cooperation.

No dogs are allowed in the grounds at Garden Club Meetings or Sip’n’Snip.
