Guest lecturer

Many thanks to Diane Clement for an inspirational lecture to the East Lancashire Group last evening. Diane travelled up from Pershore despite an ever present threat of snow and gave us a beautifully structured talk entitled; 'Alpines in the wild and cultivation'. Thoroughly recommended and much appreciated by our assembled members.
