Capel Horticultural Society AGM
The Society’s annual General Meeting was held on November 11th in the Capel Village Memorial Hall. Nearly thirty members attended and had the benefit of a range of refreshments before and after the main meeting so there was plenty of time to chat. The Chairman reported that the society, now in its 121st year, is in good shape and that we had two really well-supported Shows during the year. At the meeting Dr John Ashwood told us that he was retiring after several years as the Society’s President. We are sorry to lose him, and he was thanked for all his support. Neil Carter was nominated and elected to succeed John. We are very fortunate that Neil has taken on this role and look forward to the future with him to help guide us.
