North East Local Group Announcement
The N.E. Local Group of The Heather Society (THS) have regrettably announced that they have had to wind up their organisation. Like the other local groups the NE Group was a vibrant organisation with a Committee which arranged meetings and visits to local gardens and attractions giving the opportunity for THS members to meet face to face. Sadly many of the THS members on the Committee have passed on and there has been no interest from younger members to take over the reins, a sign of the times. The THS Council thank in particular Dorothy Warner for heading up the Group for many years and thank those other members who made a valiant attempt to keep the organisation going.
The balance of the funds, belonging to the Group, have been donated to Holehird Gardens for use with their various heather projects.
