HAGA Update

From Daphne Hicks

To those going on the Beth Chatto visit on Saturday 20th September
It’s been some time since this visit was arranged.. So I’m just checking everyone’s still coming and they remember it’s an 8.30am start. So please could you email me back to confirm you’re still coming.
I’ll be telephoning anyone on the list without email.

A change to the programme – Heritage Weekend cancelled
As we hadn’t yet asked members for items to sell, you’ll probably have realised that the National Trust’s Heritage Weekend is not now taking place this year. If you were growing anything for our stall at Hughenden Manor, then we’ve still got the bazaar to look forward to in November and we’ll be looking for plenty of items then!

HAGA September meetings

From Joanna Hughes

Our regular meetings recommence in September with ‘Bees and their Relatives’ given by John Catton in Hughenden Village Hall at 8.00 pm. All welcome.

Don’t forget Hughenden Manor Heritage Weekend on Saturday 13 September and the visit to Marks Hall Arboretum and the Beth Chatto Gardens on Saturday 20 September.
