Tom Way – Video Presentation

To HAGA members, From Daf.

Some of you may have been at our meetings in the last couple of years when Tom Way talked to us about his wildlife photography and he was due to come to us in July.

Who knows what will happen by then but in the meantime Tom has done a short presentation on Youtube that he’d like to pass on to the groups he would have been talking to. You can also email him back with any questions. (this may take a moment to load, but is is there!)

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!
