The Next Meeting:


In order to avoid the Early May Bank Holiday we normally hold our meeting on the second Monday. However, in celebration of the Coronations of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla, the second Monday in May will also be a Bank Holiday in 2023.


We will, therefore, not have a meeting on 8th May, instead we will have an outdoor meeting later in May – members will have had details in the newsletter.


Our next indoor meeting is on Monday 5th June, when Ian Woolnough will give us a talk on “Cacti and other high altitude plants from South America”.  


Please come along from 7.30pm to Wilstead Village hall, Cotton End Road, Wilstead, MK45 3BX. The talk will start at 8:00pm


Capitation fee per meeting for members remains at £2, but due to increased costs we have had to raise the visitor fee to £5. Membership subscriptions remain unchanged at £8 per annum for single members, £12.50 for joint membership and £2.00 for juniors / students.
