Donnington Horticultural Society


Donnington Horticultural Society held its AGM and Spring Bulb Show last Friday. As usual a good selection of spring flowers was on display and the scents filled the village hall!

The members present judged the numerous vases in the various classes and the winner was Mandy Davis who was presented with the cup to hold for the next twelve months. Isobel Perry came second and April Janman third.

This was followed by the Annual General Meeting. The Chairman reported a very good year with membership up and an increased balance in the Bank. He did ask for more members to take part in the summer and autumn shows. The Officers elected were Brian Turbefield (Chairman) Maura Field (Vice Chairman) Mary Thrasher (Treasurer) and Mandy Davis (Secretary).
