November 2011 newsletter

There are lots of great events coming up in the next month. See below for details.

But first a plea, the SOWN Nursery desperately needs help repairing rat-proof cages to protect our precious propagation trays. It's not difficult, just laborious. Instruction provided. Please go to the link below to find out more about the SOWN Nursery or click on this email link to volunteer.

Yes, please, I want to fix rat cages!

Also coming up at 4pm on Saturday 3 December 2011 is the SOWN AGM, followed by the Christmas Party. All members welcome.

We are particularly keen to find a new treasurer (we have a bookkeeper so the position is supervisory rather than hands on).

Click on the AGM link to download a nomination form if you would like to serve on the SOWN management committee as treasurer or in any other position.

Please email Anne Jones, SOWN Secretary, to find out more about being on the SOWN management committee.
