ASTLEY HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY: During the afternoon of December 14committee members gathered together during the afternoon to prepare the room at Astley Village Hall ready for the American Supper and quiz. As members arrived with their goodies in the evening there was already a festive mood in the air with the Christmas Tree and room festooned with garlands.

Derek Walker welcomed everyone and thanked them for their gifts of food and raffle prizes. He introduced Ross Andrews who would be the quiz master for the evening. He explained that he had prepared a quiz on toys, gardening, anagrams of Christmas and planes.

Many thanks Ross for providing such entertainment.

The next meeting is on February 15 when Ross Barbour will talk on "Bulbs for the unusual"
