The Produce Show with Photographic Competition and AGM combined in September was once again an enjoyable event. We wondered how much produce would be available after the boiling hot summer but club members were mostly undaunted. Although the green bean entries were down, the winner made up for it with a worthy display.

The winning Sicillian orange and chocolate cake was irresistible and several members were caught sneaking a mouthful - after the judging of course.

Michael Brown dwelled on 'Death in the Garden' at the October meeting and Lady Christine Skelmersdale will be talking on 'The Year Round Bulb Garden' on November 6th.

The day trip to RHS Wisley, despite the weather, was enjoyed by all who went. It is always nice to visit the gardens in the autumn and enjoy the wonderful colours in the borders and surrounding trees.
