Dear members,

Sadly, we have lost our great gardener Michael Hicken, whose memorable talks and expert knowledge of plants both informed, entertained and meant so much to us.  Our memories over all the years of IGC, with both Heather and Michael as our greatest supporters, will be treasured by all who knew them.

We have sent our sincerest condolences to his family.

Cilla Pickett, President


 Dear Members,

What a great afternoon and evening we had for the IGC Summer party. Sunshine and sunflowers, apéros and bubbly, pétanque, tombola, flower arrangements, BBQ, a little music and camaraderie. Even a few canine friends joined in. The flower arrangement winner was Helen Eagers and Ginny Steel won the pétanque.

Many thanks to the committee and helpers for making it such a memorable occasion.

We will take a break in August but do start giving some thought to your entries for the September horticulture show. We are all struggling with this very dry weather but I am sure you will all come up trumps.

The Autumn programme is in place with talks from Ian Warden and Gill Howl and we already have lots of ideas for next year.

Enjoy the rest of the summer and see you all in September.

Best wishes,

Cilla Pickett, President
