Diary

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.
