Hi all Ayrshire Group members.

The year is flying past already and our second meeting is upon us. Next scheduled is Sunday 10th February 2019 at Alloway Village Hall - 1.30pm to 5.0pm. No particular theme tree as such so bring along what you can for the display tables. The main theme for day will be Re-potting and its various aspects. So you can contemplate re-potting some stuff for yourself or helo others with this vital part of the hobby. Bear in mind the weather conditions and whether you have a suitable location to shelter and protect any recently re-potted items. There will be newer members present who will require advice, encouragement and hands-on demonstration. We can also discuss our recent Winter Image Exhibition and take aboard any matters that might be raised regarding it. See you then.
