Lerryn and District Produce Association

                 ALL CHANGE!

It is with sadness and immense gratitude that we say goodbye to Mr Eric Baker M.V.O. in his role as President of the Lerryn and District Produce Association.

He has been our President for many years, and with such a respected plantsman as Eric at the helm we have gone from strength to strength. We thank Eric for his contribution to the success of the Association in its 64th year.

Peter Bucknell has announced his decision to retire from his post as Chairman. He will be sorely missed, but the committee are delighted that his good sense and consummate skills will not be lost to us altogether as he has generously agreed to take over as joint President alongside his wife, Pat. We take this opportunity of thanking Peter for his 10 years in the post, for guiding us through annual Produce Shows and Plant Sales, committee meetings and cake tastings. Thanks, Peter!

Pat Bucknell has also retired from the committee – but as well as her co-presidency with Peter, she will continue to contribute her valued knowledge and experience by remaining as Steward of the Flower classes.

The committee are delighted to announce that John Hancock has bravely agreed to become the new Chairman of the Produce Association. Well done John, we’re all looking forward to working with you!             

OUR IN-HOUSE EXPERT SAYS…
 
April/May is a good time to sow runner beans, carrots, beetroot, lettuce and broad beans. However, the weather around now can show signs of summer coming, but beware, night-time cold can still be harmful to early plantings – and don’t forget to sharpen your hoes, before getting to grips with those weeds.

An extra hour of daylight makes all the difference if you’re gallantly trying to bring on plants to donate to our annual sale. Your efforts will be much appreciated as always, and of course, will raise much-needed funds for our annual Produce Show – now in its 64th year.
