November Meeting & Terry's Birthday

We are a little behind with the postings, but at our meeting on the 5 November we celebrated the the 80th Birthday of Terry Stent, who was for many years a leading member of the Society and a keen exhibitor at shows. That competitive streak saw him win many prizes. He has eased down now and in recent years has looked after the seed order. He is looking after the 2014 requirements but will be passing the responsibility to someone else in 2015. He is seen here dealing with the candles on the cake. Congratulations Terry.

The Secret Gardens of London was the topic for our speaker Colin Jones, who also happens to be Chairman of the nearby Sanderstead Horticultural Society. No of us had any idea there are so many to view, and it has stimulated some ideas for a members trip out during 2015. Colin (on the left) is seen chatting to a member following his talk.
