EDITORIAL

Last year was another good year for the Society. This was largely thanks to
all the volunteers and all who support us plus those who attend our events.
In this, my first year as Chairman, I was surprised to discover that there are
over 30 specific roles within LHS which are carried out by volunteers at
various times throughout the year or at individual events. The support of all
concerned is much appreciated by your committee.


Details of this year's events appear on the following pages apart from the
outings which will be detailed in a newsletter as soon as possible. I am
looking forward to attending as many of these events as possible. I missed
out on a few of the outings in 2016 and, as I thoroughly enjoyed each trip I
did go on, I'll have to organise myself a bit better for this year.

It would be good to see an increase in the number of entries in this year's
shows. The special acquisition last year in anticipation of this year's Spring
Show, the 'Uncle Duncan' bulbs were all sold. Hopefully, the endeavours of
all who purchased these bulbs will be reflected in a good number of entries
in the appropriate daffodil classes.

An Imposed Flower Arrangement competition has been added to the Autumn
Show which will be judged by public vote, similar to the judging of the
popular 'flowers in a tea cup' Class in last year's Summer Show.

Also new for 2017 is the Gardeners' Forum in June. It is planned to have a
panel of 4 gardening experts on the stage, answering questions from the
audience. No doubt, various (possibly heated) discussions will take place
which will mean that we will be looking to the chairperson to keep order.
This event is well on the way to being organised and details will appear in a
Newsletter as soon as possible.

Whilst the Shows in 2016 were successful, your committee is looking at ways
to encourage more entries. Some suggestions as to how we could achieve
this have been received and will be considered in earnest before the
publication of the 2018 Show Schedule. Further suggestions in respect of
these matters would be very welcome as would any suggestion about the
future activities of our society.

Chris Gurr, Chairman
