The Chairman's Message For 2019
With such a glorious Summer and Autumn, 2018 was a year that many members won't forget for a long time, if only for the challenging gardening conditions! It was also a good year for the Society and we were able to celebrate the year with three surprisingly excellent Shows (given the challenging growing conditions), very successful trading, another good trip to RHS Hyde Hall rounded off by our excellent annual dinner at which it was good to see new faces celebrating. Once again we won the Affiliated Societies Cup at the October RHS London Harvest Show for a collection of 9 dishes of apples and pears.
As ever I must thank our volunteer members who enable our Society to offer so much and would particularly like to thank Catherine Dann for being such an outstanding President.
2020 sees our 80th Anniversary and you can be assured that your Committee are planning to celebrate this in style so please keep your eyes out for communications from the Society. Amazingly 2020 is only a year away now!
I look forward to meeting you during the year.
Gerry Edwards. Chairman - Eastcote Horticultural Society.
