Society display
at the
Taverham Garden Centre, Norwich, Norfolk

      Dave Hargreaves and Sue Riches were chatting to the owner of Taverham Garden Centre, Norwich, Norfolk, just down the road from Sue's home, when they mentioned about putting on a display of Begonias to promote the Society, and the chap jumped at it. Geoff Keer was approached as Area Rep. but because of the distance involved from his home to Taverham he felt it would be too much for him to play an active part, but was not against Dave and Sue staging a display on the Area's behalf if they so wished. They approached myself, John Taylor, John Tinkley and Tony Reynolds to see if we would assist, and when we agreed they began organising the whole thing. They were delighted to see Stan Clark who had accompanied John Taylor to assist also, and the results may be seen on this page.
   The display was over the two days of the 21st. and 22nd. August 2010, and it went very well with 8 new members enrolled. The owner was extremely pleased with everything, so it may become another feature on the Norfolk and Suffolk calendar in the future.
