Starting with the AGM and show of member's photos in September or October, there is a monthly indoor meeting with guest speakers on a wide variety of subjects, usually, but not always, with a botanical theme.
Then from around April onwards there is a programme of outdoor field trips, mostly at weekends, with some midweek, and one evening meeting.  There is also a chance to go further afield on the annual weekend away.

*******The IBG committee have taken the decision to cancel all of our outdoor meetings for 2020.  These meetings will be re-scheduled to take place in 2021.  At the moment we don't yet know what rules on indoor meetings and social distancing will be in place at the time of our AGM and regular monthly meetings.  We have a tentative programme ready to put in place should we be able to go ahead with it.  We will update everyone as soon as we can make definite plans. *******
