Our talk on the 7th August is by Adrian James who will take us for a wander down the ‘Quiet Roads in Cornwall’ no doubt to find some hidden garden gems.   Adrian is a gardener and plant photographer and his images are used in magazines and advertising.

As usual the talk will start at 7:30pm with complimentary refreshments available from 7:00pm.  Visitors are very welcome and we charge £4 per ticket.  For those interested in joining the society membership is £12 per year.  Our talks are held at Colwall Village Hall.

Don’t forget our Annual Show is the following Saturday (12th August) so please bring your donations for the tombola and produce stall.  If you are planning to enter the Show, and we do hoe you will, don’t forget to make sure your entry show is submitted by 5pm on Thursday 10th August (details on the Show Entry Form)
