The chosen charities for 2007 were Colchester’s YMCA The Foyer and Haven Mental Health Support. A cheque for £400 was presented to each charity. Guest speaker Alan Smith from Ipswich with 7 other NAFAS members had been chosen to represent the Colchester Group at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2007. He arranged two displays in brown orange and blue during his talk to give members an idea of what was accomplished on a much larger scale at Chelsea.
The next meeting is on Wednesday February 20 when subscriptions of £20 will be due.
