Autumn 2022 meeting
Our next meeting will be on Sunday 23rd October 2022. Jonathan Hutchinson will talk about his visit to Zimbabwe. His written report appeared in Newsletter 41, but the meeting will be a chance to see many more photos, and ask questions!
Directions to the meeting hall. The doors will open at 10.00, and the meeting will close at about 14.30.
As in previous meetings, and subject to any Government requirements or guidelines in place at the time, there will be a display table for any plants that you bring along for others to see. We will have time for some informal discussion during the afternoon, so that members can point out their plants and answer any questions. If you have any slides or computer images that you would like to show, please bring them along.
All who are interested in growing these plants will be welcome. Doors open at 10:00 a.m. and the meeting will finish at approximately 2:30 p.m. There is an entry fee of £3.00, but parking is free. There will as usual be a plant display table, plant sales (a good reason to arrive soon after 10:00!), and tea and coffee with biscuits. There will also be some books for sale. You are encouraged to bring along any plants you wish to display or sell, or digital photos to share with the audience. Bring your own lunch, or pop into Sainsbury’s next door for a sandwich.
The timetable we plan is as follows:
|10am||Doors open for Plant Sales. Tea/coffee available|
|11am – 12.00||Talk by Jonathan Hutchinson on Zimbabwe|
|12.00 - 1 pm||Lunch|
|1pm - 2pm||Short talks by member|
|2pm – 2.30pm||Winding up|
More details of our meetings are given on the meetings page.

See Past, present and future meetings for brief details of all past meetings.
On Sunday 28th March 2021 we arranged a virtual meeting at 1:30 for 2pm using the Zoom online video-conferencing software.
Jon Evans showed the second part of his talk on “Plants seen at AGS shows” for our Zoom meeting at 2pm. This gave a chance for all those members who can’t normally travel to our meetings in person to join in. Jon gave us the first part of his talk at our last physical meeting on 6 October 2019 in Winchester.
Our Zoom meeting is at 14:00, on the day the UK moves to British Summer Time (BST, daylight saving), one hour ahead of GMT/UTC. You might miss it if you are a member in the UK or most other European countries and forget to change your watch or clocks, or if you are a member in another country whose time does not change at the same time as ours (e.g. USA, Canada, Australia, etc.) You can see the current time in the UK here: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/uk/london
