Halesworth in Bloom tree wardens have been busy planting trees all around town this winter; white beam at the corner of Norwich Road and Old Bungay Road, crab apple along Roman Way, then we started on free native baby trees from the Woodland Trust, of which we have over 100.
As they are so small they come with a plastic tube which we hope will be removed in a couple of years. Trees this size are normally easy to establish and we will not be watering them. If you live near any of them please give them a drink if we have another drought this summer.
The beautiful 2019 Halesworth in Bloom calendar is now available from Number Seven Hair (Market Place), Edwards (Thoroughfare) and the Library. Cost £10, all profits to Halesworth in Bloom
You are invited to join us at the Halesworth in Bloom AGM on Friday, November 16th at Halesworth Library at 4.00 pm (see the attached agenda). So that we know how many people to expect, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave your name on the list in the Halesworth in Bloom folder in the Library (ask at the desk).
The AGM will include the election of officers and committee members. The following are the current named officers (mix of 2016 AGM nominations and subsequent changes/additions):
If anyone would like to be nominated for any of these posts, please let us know. Our constitution states that “Not later than two weeks before the AGM of Halesworth in Bloom, any member can put forward a candidate for any of the officerships, not including her/himself, and with a seconder. If there are two or more candidates for a post, a ballot by email will determine the outcome. Members without access to email can express their choices by any other means to the secretary [via the HIB folder in the Library]. The secretary will convey the results of any ballots to members by e-mail, personal contact or telephone, as appropriate. The current post-holder will retain the post if there are no candidates proposed for it.”
