Our Autumn meeting this year will be in Usk at the Centenary Hall, on Tuesday 20th October, with very special guest speaker Dr Rosie Plummer, Director of the National Botanic Garden of Wales. Rosie became director in 2010, ten years after the opening of the Garden and research centre. It’s now the most visited garden in Wales, with a collection of over 8,000 different plant varieties, spread across 560 acres of beautiful Carmarthenshire countryside, including an extensive area of traditionally managed wildflower meadows at the adjacent Waun Las National Nature Reserve, managed as a working organic farm.
The meeting starts at 7 pm. We shall have our usual buffet supper and plenty of time to chat and socialise with fellow meadows enthusiasts.
The Centenary Hall (also known as the Scout Hut) is in the far corner of the Maryport Street South Car Park, Maryport Street, Usk NP15 1AD (opposite the prison) where there is ample free parking.
