Arctic Alpines and the AGM, Sat. 9th April

The spring meeting is fast approaching this weekend and we are going ahead with an in person event:

2-4pm, Sat. 9th April, at FSC Preston Montford, SY4 1DX:  

An illustrated talk by John Martin on “Arctic Alpine Plants in Britain”, plus a smidgeon of AGM business and lashings of tea and cake.

It will certainly be great to meet up but we realise that Covid transmission rates are high. We will be in the Caradoc room so there will be plenty of space and ventilation. If you are happy to, we'll wear masks indoors, we might even have tea outside if the weather is kind, and FSC prefer testing beforehand if you can get hold of any test kits (hens teeth and all that). 

That said we are looking forward to relaxing with some mini Salix or a cushion of Saxifrages as John gives us a Cook's Tour of some nice Arctic-Alpine sites and plants.

The event is free, including the refreshments provided by volunteer bakers.  All are welcome to join us, you don't have to be a member, just message us at: shropbotsoc@gmail.com to book your seat.

Hope to see you there.
