I’m sure that I do not have to remind you what a turbulent year 2020 has been for everybody and I hope that you all remain safe and well in these difficult times. The immediate effect on the Society of the pandemic and subsequent restrictions was the cancellation of all meetings, shows, sales and trips except for the meetings in January and February.
One interesting aspect of the Covid-19 situation has been the increase in the use of the Zoom program for communicating and I was very pleased to arrange a presentation by Adam Pasco, journalist, author and broadcaster, in lieu of our scheduled September meeting at the village hall. It proved to be an outstanding talk about “How to Create a Garden for Every Season” accompanied by a very illustrative slide show. As it is extremely unlikely that we will be able to hold the Society’s meetings at the village hall until April 2021 at the earliest, I hope to be able to stage more Zoom-based presentations - watch this space!
