The Committee make each meeting as interesting, informative and relevant as possible so that members may thoroughly enjoy adding to their store of knowledge of roses and rose growing.

Meetings are usually finished by 9.30pm, followed by supper (bring a plate of some nice snack! Be sure to take up a strategic position within easy diving range of Jacinta's sponge cake!).

At most meetings a mini rose show competition is held where members may practice their show bench skills and new members may learn how to show roses and get on-the-spot advice from the experts. Or, simply bring your beautiful roses for all to enjoy and chat over.

Members are encouraged to ask questions and bring along samples of their rose problems for expert advice.
