The meeting on Thursday 11 April was preceded by a delicious shared lunch provided by the members. In the absence of the President, the meeting was chaired by one of the Vice Presidents, June Higgins, who welcomed everyone – including a returning visitor – and thanked the members for the food contributions. Items discussed included the Dewisland Group Spring meeting and the PFWI Annual Quiz both having been attended by members and enjoyed. Future dates include the 2019 Annual Meeting and the Spring Council Meeting on Saturday 11 May.
The talk by Dr Sam Langdon on “Adders are Amazing” was considered brilliant. She told us about the worrying decline in the adder population and how this is an indication of the general decline in native wildlife. She encouraged us to keep dogs on leads on the coast path and to leave our stone hedge banks unscathed. She also pointed out that although adders have had a bad PR, there have been far fewer deaths from adder bites in the UK than other causes such as road accidents. They are shy creatures and are not aggressive unless frightened.
Our next meeting will be on Thursday 9 May at 2pm when we welcome back Sheena Crossley, who will entertain us (as ever!) with an illustrated talk on “Gardening with Herbs”.
