  2. I would like to thank all that attended the late meeting and bulb auction it was a really good afternoon the talk and slide show from Ken Harrop was a very got insight in to the amount of hard work he puts in to the growing of his daffodils and attention to detail it was really enthralling. Then followed by the auction which was one of the best we have had with a return of £391 which goes to show the quality of the bulbs from donations by Jan Pennings, John Gibson, Ron Scamp, Johnny Walkers, Frankie Charlton of Miniature &Choice Bulbs and Rae Beckwith with out them there would not have been an auction many thanks on behalf of the Northern Group members.
    Also on the afternoon a Northern Group logo inscribed Crystal Glass Jug was presented by our president (Wendy Akers) to Tony James for his outstanding contributions to the group over the years a big thank you from us all.

  3. Well done everyone!. This rounds off another very good year.
    Congratulations to Tony and a big thank you from all of us for the splendid work that he has done on behalf of the Daffodil over the years.

  4. I am just about to start doing the accounts for the year ending February 2014.
    Unfortunately I will be unable to carry on any longer ( Richard is in hospital yet again ) and I would be grateful for any offers to take over the post of Treasurer
    after this financial year.
