The Annual general Meeting of the Biddenham Gardener’s Association was held on 15th July 2014.
The Chairman reported on another successful year with an average attendance of nearly fifty. Speakers were generally of a high standard and we had three attractive outings. A particular achievement of the year was the creation of the wildflower bed at the entrance to Deep Spinney.
The treasurer reported a balance of £ 2,341. George Metcalf was thanked for his services in examining the accounts.
