AUGUST


In August 2018 we had our AGM. Table Show Winner is Baxter Henderson with his stunning Dendrobium Hibiki. We had 3 of them on the show. But for obvious reasons Baxter's Dendrobium had to be the winner.

We decided in this AGM on a new board and have given out trophies for the most points at Table Shows.

DECEMBER


This year we have decided not to go out for Christmas Lunch but to invite all members to a Christmas Lunch at the Hall in Ashford. Laurence Hobbs had a tradestand with beautiful orchids for sale and with Christmas music and amazing orchids on the table for show we took the opportunity to chat and enjoy some festive cheer.

We are wishing everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
