The CPRA Annual General Meeting will be held at 7:30pm on Wednesday 22 May 2019 at Chester Golf Club.
We hope as many of you as possible will come along. Doors open at 7pm.
As an enticement to attend, a free glass of wine or soft drink will be available on arrival.
We will, as usual, be seeking fresh faces and minds for the Management Committee, including a new Chairman.
No previous knowledge of or involvement in CPRA are necessary for any of the positions, and there is no commitment necessarily involved beyond attending as many as you can of 7-8 committee meetings in a year. If you would like to discuss volunteering, please contact the current Chairman, Jim Shapton (firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 077805 16890), or just show up at the AGM and put up your hand.
After two very successful Curzon Park Garden Trails in 2017 and 2018, we’ve got another one planned for Saturday 6 July 2019.
The Group Trail will cover five gardens, starting in a Curzon park South garden and finishing up in a Curzon Park North garden for tea/coffee and cakes.
Assuming the same level of interest as in previous years, there will be one Trail starting at 10am and the second starting at 2pm (the Trails will be in groups for security reasons).
The gardens on the Trail are all very interesting and very different from each other – offering ideas for your own gardens.
The ticket price is £5 – if you would like a ticket, please contact Jacky on 01244 677266.
Come along to hear guest speaker June Bamford from The Guild of Chester Tour Guides talk about her experiences of being a tour guide in Chester.
