We can’t gather together in person for now

Changes to events

To do our bit to limit the spread of the new Coronavirus the RSV have made three fairly big changes ([EDIT] actually four):

1. We won’t have our usual monthly meetings for the time being. We hope we may be able to start meetings again in July.

2. We won’t hold the Autumn Rose Spectacular this 2020 year ([EDIT] and now the Spring Rose Show has had to be cancelled too.)

3. There won’t be any rose pruning demonstrations this year.

This is all a little bit lonely and disappointing, it has to be admitted, but the more we all pull together (yet at a safe distance) right now the quicker we’ll be able to return to fun as usual. It’s up to us! Sit tight, take all possible care and we’ll stop it in its tracks.

As soon as things are fine again, we’ll resume monthly meetings, and when that time comes we’ll let everyone know. We’re very much looking forward to it!

There will regular updates here, so watch this space.

Something lovely to sing for just over 20 seconds hand-washing time:

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose

When you kiss me, heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose
