Annual General Meeting 2018

      Wednesday 10th November

             7.30 pm, Lavant Memorial Hall

All members are encouraged to come to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) -
in spite of the dry sounding name, it should be a very useful and enjoyable evening.

After short reports on this year’s activities and proposals for 2019, you will be able to voice your opinions and support those proposals that you think are most appropriate, This input from members is essential to ensure that the Society continues to be run to members.

Any member wishing to raise an issue to be put to the vote at the AGM should contact Michael Kingsford, by 17th October. Without this, issues can still be raised at the AGM itself, but cannot be voted on.
LHS officers and committee members for next year need to be voted in by the AGM

New committee members are needed to ensure that the Society continues to be run properly. Please consider volunteering for this - it is not particularly onerous and the committee operates as a friendly team.

When business is complete, the social side of the evening takes over,
with a complimentary glass of wine (or alcohol-free drink) and finger buffet - an excellent opportunity to catch up with friends and make new ones.

Lavant Horticultural Society can trace its origins back some 60 years.

Today it is flourishing with about 150 members & a good level of active participation.

It aims to foster interest in, and knowledge of, plants, gardens and gardening, with a monthly programme of talks and events,

always in a very friendly and relaxed environment.

The annual membership fee is £7 per person.

The monthly meetings are then free, so this remains very good value for money

(especially taking into account the complimentary glass of wine & finger buffet at the AGM)

Annual Supper

14th February 2018

Some 40 members had a very enjoyable evening. It followed the traditional 'bring & share' format and the quality & variety of the dishes was particularly good.

Whether the glass of wine helped us tackle the challenging quizzes is debatable.
