Harry Green was our excellent speaker this month. Harry, a “local lad” well known to many of our members, is Head Gardener at Morton Hall near Inkberrow. He gave us a brief history of the property, which has been an estate in some form for many hundreds of years. An old barn there was mentioned in the Doomsday book. The present owners have completely refurbished the garden and opened up vistas through the garden and of the surrounding countryside.Our Christmas meeting is on Wednesday 12th December and an evening of fun is being planned.Our meetings are on the second Wednesday of every month at the Village Hall, 7.30pm for 8pm. Visitors are very welcome. Please phone Jean Smith on 01527 861437 for further information.
