Chairman’s Introduction  

Welcome to the summer edition of the THACS newsletter.

By the time you read this, the Tewin Village Fete will have come and gone. I hope that you came along and enjoyed this lovely village event and maybe even brought a few plants from the plant stall.

Our next summer event is the visit to RHS Wisley on Wednesday 25th July. Places are still available, so do come along and join us for a great day out enjoying this marvellous garden and catching up with the recent developments there. Meanwhile, preparations for our Autumn Show on Saturday 1st September are well under way, so make a note of the date and please support this event by exhibiting some of your handiwork.

Autumn Show Entry forms and Schedule can be found in 'Booking Forms' above. Full details in 'Forthcoming Events'

Ray Keppler (Chairman)



It’s time for a new editor, who can bring their own style and fresh approach to the newsletters. Could that be you? 

There are five THACS newsletters each year and your role as editor would be to collate and edit articles about forthcoming or recent events, insert the adverts and get the newsletters ready for printing. You would not need to write anything yourself (except maybe an editorial introduction) and you do not need to be able to use any sophisticated desk-top publishing tools. However, you would need to be able to work to publishing deadlines and to orchestrate the contributors to get their articles to you on time.  

The role of Newsletter Editor has always been done by a member of the THACS committee and so you would be most welcome to join us. This would make your editorial task easier because you would have a better understanding of THACS activities and be able to discuss and influence editorial policy and newsletter content. However, you could be Newsletter Editor without joining the committee if that would suit you better. 

If you would like to know more, please contact me.
