All meetings as usual are at  Williams Memorial Hall, Main Road, Coychurch, Bridgend CF35 5HD at 2 o’clock.

Covid precautions will still be in place i.e. doors kept open for ventilation so bring some warm clothing and masks to be worn when moving about the building etc.

Surplus plants for the raffle will be welcome at all meetings.

As a footnote, you might also be interested in the Alpine Garden Society Spring Show on Saturday 19th February from 11.00am to 3.30pm.  This is at a new venue, which looks rather easier to find than the previous one – Llanwern High School, Hartridge Farm Road, Newport NP18 2YE. From M4 J24 take the A48 westbound towards the city centre, turn left at the 2nd roundabout and the school is the 1st turning on the left.  As well as the show itself there will be nuseries with plants for sale, excellent and inexpensive home-made lunches and refreshments, photographic exhibition and more. A great day out!
