We held a very successful Annual General Meeting on 23rd  March, at Lumen, with 38 people attending. Our guest speaker, Bob Gilbert, Urban Ecologist, brilliantly entertained us with his wide knowledge of the life of the trees in our Gardens and audience participation guessing when each variety will come into leaf.

Our chair, Jo Baktis, stood down after nine years leading the Friends group, with Diana Scarrott and Sue Heiser taking on a joint chairing role.  The Friends group is in good shape for the coming year.
