SECRETARY June Dempsey welcomed members to the February meeting.

It was with sadness June announced the resignation of chairman Edith Jones who is moving away from the area.

The speakers for the evening were Mr and Mrs Arthur Dunham, with a talk and slides of their dream, Dunhams Wood.

Margaret Dunham explained how they always wanted to plant a wood and started with five acres of barren land and how they gradually planted trees and shrubs and created a paradise for children and groups alike.

Margaret gave a very descriptive talk about the wood and how the little trains and sculptures all came into being. The talk was accompanied by slides which brought it all to life. It has been running for 21 years.

Marie Whittlesea thanked Mr and Mrs Dunham for coming at short notice and giving such an entertaining evening.
