The Early Spring Show is on Saturday 2rd March. If you have not already volunteered, please let Kit Strange or Ros Fuller (co-ordinator) know you are willing. I know more help is needed setting up on the Friday night. Set up starts at 16.30 and hope to finish by 21.30. This is our Show and its success can contribute significantly to Group funds.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 12th March which is our own Hugh Meteyard, who will be speaking about their recent trip to Mongolia. It should be very interesting.
