Our first Members Open Day at our new premises sparkled with sunshine and the plants looked grand.
The fine day and the convenient location meant that several dozen members took the advantage to get their plants before the crowds at the show—and catch up with friends over coffee. We banked more than $1200, an excellent boost for ANGAIR’s conservation funds.
Despite warnings of gale force winds over our show weekend, we were lucky. Saturday was fine and mild; Sunday was brisk but dry until the last few hours. All up, plant buyers came and bought generously. The total take was more than $4500.
Good money, of course, but the best thing was that our new home made the onerous job of setting up very much easier for our dedicated volunteers. Our thanks go to all who made the weekend such a success.

We meet at at the propagation unit behind the ANGAIR office, each Tuesday and Thursday at 9.00 a.m. and continue until we finish at about 12.00 p.m. Anyone with an interest in achieving something special is welcome, and no experience is required.
The ANGAIR Plant Propagation Group is very short of forest tubes and always like more cartons. Please leave them at the ANGAIR Office. Thanks in advance for your support.
