We began the year with a new venue – one of the classrooms at WinTec Horticultural School at the Hamilton Gardens.

The first meeting of 2016 was mostly one of organising and rearranging things, plus a ‘Show and Tell’ session about some of our trees, a look at our new website and a special general meeting in order to change some of the club rules so that they better support our new AGM date.

The presentation given by Helen and Aaron on the new club website was great. Hopefully members will use it much more and we’ll have many more visitors from around New Zealand and the world checking in to see what we do here in Hamilton.
