Wine and delicacies were served, and Marianne ran a quiz on bees, which linked in well with Gerald Cooper, from New Quay Honey Farm, who gave a talk on bees last year. Carrie Noakes won the prize for her bee knowledge. As member Rita Hyde said "I thought the AGM went well last night, with a good turn out...I enjoyed the bee quiz, even though I had forgotten most of the answers. The food seemed to go down well and it was nice to see everyone standing around chatting."
Quite a lot of business was done, and you can read the entire minutes by going to the link; http://rhydlewisgardeningclub.blogspot.co.uk/p/annual-general-meeting-2013.html

|make a cake from your courgettes|
A great idea from Liz Blackler, our new Show Secretary, was brought into action. She will collate any recipies you have that you use to cope with gluts of produce at harvest time. Preserves, cakes, dishes – just sort them out and give them to Liz. She will have them available at meetings, especially around harvest time, to share.
Don't forget the Spring Show is the next event, get ready with your six tulips, and contact Liz Blackler, if you don't already have your show schedule. firstname.lastname@example.org
Just one more thing; don't forget that we are constricted to a two hour slot in the village hall, and we ask you to arrive promptly for meetings; the hall will be open from 7pm to facilitate a prompt start at 7.30pm
