Our next event will be in Cumnor Village Hall, Monday 2nd March 2020 at 7.30pm.  There will be a talk by Dr Hazel Roberts from Milton Keynes, entitled “Growing Food Not Glut”s.  Hazel will look at the ways to avoid growing more fruit and vegetables than we can cope with, as well as ingenious ways to use, preserve and store them so that we make use of your abundance. After the talk will be our AGM, which all members are warmly invited to attend.  You can also collect your membership and programme card.

The papers for the AGM are being distributed.  They include information about our outings for 2020, a chairman’s report and the membership renewal form.
