President's Message - November 2015

What a busy, but enjoyable year the Club has had. Thank you very much to everyone who has worked so hard in their various roles to make our garden club work. It is difficult to keep our Club 'fresh' and have things that are relevant to gardens and gardening happening throughout the year. People on the committees do a sterling job doing just that - I would like to express a personal thankyou to all who have contributed over the year.

I wish the incoming Executive, committee members and others who help with the day-to-day running of the club all the very best for 2016 and hope you enjoy the roles that you have volunteered for.

Gardening is a great pastime, not least because absolutely everyone can do it. That is certainly reflected in the diversity of gardening interests within our club - and there is always someone in the club who will know the answer if you have a query, or will be able to find someone who does.

This was definitely on show earlier in the month when Bob & Gaye Tarry organised and hosted an orchid workshop at their home. Club members were treated to some great information and training by Ed Pearce from the Coffs Harbour Orchid Society who facilitated the workshop. Bob & Gaye also provided attendees with a lovely lunch. Thanks very much to the Tarry's and Ed.

In the spirit of 'Friendship through gardens', three member's gardens were open for a visit from Killabakh Garden Club. Killabakh is a small community 16kms north of Wingham and the garden club has about 70 members. The day itself was a little damp however, the visitors really appreciated the Tozers, Tarrys and Durlers opening their gardens for the visit. You did CHGC proud and we thank you, well done for your work in preparing your gardens for the opening.

I hope to see you all at the Club Christmas party, which happens at Opal Cove on Mon 7 December. There'll be some great food, great company, prizes to be won and Santa will be making a call during the festivities. 

Details on how to RSVP can be found in our November newsletter.
