There will be other smaller groups of visitors through the year and we need a small group to take responsibility for them.
We will also need to address the opportunity to resume gardening, to manage visits to give talks and also take our marquee around various shows.
There have been developments concerning our library but we need further commitments to progress this.
There will also be an update to the developments on the site.
Finally, it is hoped to take newer members on a site tour.
