Our rose society is all about our shared delight in the beauty of roses. All members have the opportunity reap the benefits of collective knowledge, skills and fellowship.

Some members do much, much more. They generously give of their time throughout their lives to keep the society thriving. They are the people who are the constant gardeners, the ones always there at every event, taking care of things so that we all feel the strength and security of our long association together.

This year is the RSVs 120th anniversary!

It is with great pleasure and in gratitude that the Society bestows upon two of its dearest, Clyde Laidlaw and Elizabeth Omond-Smith, the investitures of Honorary Life Membership.

The society delights in the re-election at last night’s Annual General Meeting (Tuesday 13 August) of Sandra Turner as RSV president. Thank you very much Sandra for once again taking up the yoke for all of us! We hope your time in the Rosy Throne will be fulfilling for you.

Front and centre in the above picture is the beautiful cake with which we celebrated our 120th anniversary as a rose society.

From left to right, continuing president Sandra, along with Lifetime Members Clyde and Elizabeth in a very happy moment, joining forces to cut the cake together, demonstrating the bond of fellowship that keeps our society such a strong family.
