Tonight Chairman Paul, along with Reg proposed their action plan for our upcoming show a week on Sunday. Terry Adams then took centre stage, sharing a few slides and his thoughts about his visits to the Japanese gardens of Brooklyn and San Francisco.
This week, we’ve been designing displays for our upcoming winter show. Setting trees up in this way really makes you take note of the good points, but also the areas for improvement.
