Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Is there light at the end of the pandemic tunnel? I'm writing this note two days after the government published its next phase of easing the lockdown but with current apparent increase in the number of infections in some areas of the country it would seem that the final lifting of restrictions scheduled for 21 June is in considerable doubt. The Society's committee is meeting in the next few days to review our programme for the remainder of 2021

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. A further very interesting, entertaining and informative talk entitled "Shrubs are Boring - Really? Are You Quite Sure?" was given by Nancy Stevens all the way from Glasgow! 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  Zoom presentations have been arranged for February and March as noted in the "Coming Up" section below.
