 Following the hottest summer for many years, which presented a few challenges, we passed through a beautiful autumn and are now staring down both barrels of  winter. Hopefully not quite as wet as last year! Having, of course, finished all our garden chores, we can now sit back in front of the fire, put our feet up, and
 wait for spring. Well, that might be true for some folk, but not the hardy gardeners of Shillingstone who I’m sure are relishing the thought of getting to grips with a  new crop of slugs and bugs in 2019

 By the time this has been published in the Parish Magazine we will have had our AGM on the 20th of November and for those who couldn’t attend I would like to  thank on behalf of all the club members the three long standing committee members who retired this year: Jenny Coot, Brenda Watts and Pat Marshall, hearty  thanks  for the hard work they have put in to ensure that we have a happy and healthy club. It is also comforting to know that new committee members have stepped  forward to take their places, thus ensuring a club to be proud of. The events calendar for 2019 should be finalised by the December meeting on the 18th. Coming up  at 7.30 pm on the 18th December at the Portman Hall will be a pictorial display of the years events with some Christmas Fare and possibly a glass of seasonal  refreshment. Then at 7.30pm on the 15th January will be a short, light-hearted talk on “Garden Ponds for Wildlife” by the chairman.
 New members are welcome.
