12 members and a visitor attended. This evening’s event was a new project for us – a Swap Shop & Bring’n’Buy when an assortment of trees. plants, pots, materials, and books were brought to the meeting for member’s requirements. It was interesting to see Trevor’s first handmade pots in a variety of styles – he is a budding potter and bonsai enthusiast.
The Bosworth Show was discussed and Mike confirmed the top places for the public voting and Winner beingFrank with 100, Olly Joint 2nd with two exhibits of 68 each, and Trevor 3rd with 55 votes. Every exhibit was voted on by the public which was also a good response for everyone.
It was also announced that unfortunately we need to find a new meeting place from beginning of 2016. Our current venue is going to be refurbished and our room will disappear plus the fact we have now outgrown the space. So we are looking for a new location within Leics that can provide us with a room for 2hrs, with tables to work on, and good car parking facilities for our members who come from all over the county from Coalville and Loughborough and places in between. Please contact Mike or Carol with any suggestions. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
Our next Club meeting on Tues 4 August will cover Maple pruning, and details for the Aylestone Show on the 31st Aug, also a Bank Holiday Monday.
