The Colne Valley Flower Club planned open garden evening last month was cancelled due to poor weather. All the stalls were set up at the July meeting in the Orpen Memorial Hall and £120 was raised towards the club’s local charities YMCA and the Haven Mental Health Support. The speaker Melvyn Prentice spoke about the various gardens he had been involved with during his 28 years as a horticulturist and illustrated his talk with many photographs.
There is no meeting in August but September 19 welcomes demonstrator Anne Bell from Newport with her arrangements entitled ‘From Me to You’. It also includes ‘Bring a Friend Free’.
