Suffolk Show Update and Regular Monthly Meeting
29 May @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
We have only a fortnight before our attendance at this year’s Suffolk Show, at Trinity Park, on Wednesday 29th May and Thursday 30th May. Hopefully it will be as warm as it was last year – fingers crossed. Steve will be assembling the stand ready for us to bring our plants on the evening of Tuesday 28th May from 6.30. We hope members have plants in flower and will be prepared to lend them. You can either bring them to the stand in the flower tent personally and join in the fun or deliver them to someone to bring for you. Please make sure your plants are tidy by removing dead blooms and leaves and staking them correctly. It would be helpful if you could make sure they are in black pots or standing in one as we have a shortage of sizes and numbers that Steve brings along. Steve has drawn up a list of members to man the stand. II you would like to help speak to Steve when we are putting up the stand. He will also give out tickets to those helping the next day on the Tuesday evening.
We are able to take the stand apart from about 5.00pm.when the show closes on the 30th so either come along to the stand to get your plants or make an arrangement for someone to collect them. Looking forward to what is usually a very enjoyable day.
There will be a regular meeting on the Wednesday evening (29th). It will be a much more low key meeting as it appears members would like to have more time to talk and get advice on orchid cultivation. We plan to show slides borrowed from the BOC library. If you have helped at the show that day please bring your tickets and passes to the meeting so that they can be given to those helping at the stand the next day.
