Dear all,


the November Table Show results are published now at the corresponding page.


We have also decided during the last committee meeting that we won't be holding the Online Table Show in December. We will put together December and January into one show. All of the pictures sent to me already will be uploaded at the beginning of January. Please keep sending me pictures whenever it's convenient for you though.


Voting for the best pictures sent for the Annual OSGB Photographic Competition will start tomorrow so stay tuned for the details.


We have also received a member-wide invitation to join a zoom talk by Professor Andy Jones from East Anglia speaking about growing orchids under artificial lights.

The talk will take place on the 28th of November, please email ricreilly@icloud.com for the zoom link.


A little reminder to mention, everyone is always welcome to get involved, we are looking forward to seeing new articles for The Journal, ideas for the website etc
