The Chairman's Message For 2022
In my New Year message at the beginning of last year I reflected on the difficulties that Covid had caused and how it had affected many of our lives. Sadly, I must do so again although I have high hopes for a very much better 2022. Unfortunately, we had to cancel all of our Shows and visits in 2021 but I hope that we will be back on track during 2022 starting with our Spring Show on the 12th March. As he did during the difficult days of 2020 Alan Thomas and his team were able to service members' horticultural requirements through the majority of the growing season by managing the Trading Hut in a Covid safe way. As ever we owe Alan and his team an immense amount of gratitude.
One thing that has happened during the last two years or so is a huge increase in gardening and allotment growing as more people have had to spend time at home and I hope this interest is continued. The RHS has seen a very significant membership increase in this period of time and the prediction is that this growth will continue. Hopefully we will be able to attract many of these new gardeners into membership of Eastcote Horticultural Society.
Let us all look forward to a successful, healthy and happy 2022 !
Gerry Edwards. Chairman - Eastcote Horticultural Society.
