Red Cross Open Gardens

2nd of September 1997

As a result of the three beautiful gardens opened for the Red Cross on Sunday, July 20, £4,290.65 was raised.
This wonderful total was the result of gorgeous weather, hard work by many and tremendous generosity from over 1,300 visitors.
Apologies to residents for the traffic jam but Chipperfield on a lovely summer Sunday has many attractions, so we were not entirely to blame!
Over six years Chipperfield gardens have raised over £15,500 for the Red Cross – a magnificent achievement.
Thank you all very much. Bill Fenning

Rebecca Mitchell
It is with much sadness that we record the passing of our dear friend and colleague Rebecca Mitchell. Rebecca died peacefully on the morning of July 22.
Rebecca became Membership Secretary of the Society soon after joining the committee at the end of 1988. In this role and in her unfailing support at our flower shows, as well as her regular contributions to Chipperfield News through this column, she brought a characteristic energy, enthusiasm and generosity for which the Society will always be grateful. Rebecca will be greatly and sadly missed by us all. Autumn Flower Show
The Autumn Show is on1y days away but there is still plenty of time to sort out some exhibits and get your entry forms in. There is something for everyone in the schedule:
flowers, vegetables, floral art, cooking, handicraft and junior classes, so no excuses about the weather.
Your committee, who put in time and not a little hard work to present these shows, are looking for your active support at this our last show of the year, hopefully to make up for the very poor turnout at the Summer Show. So come on, dont be shy or leave it to somebody else, help put on a good show and keep the society alive. If you have not exhibited before, need any help or information, let me or any committee member know.
