If you are not yet a member, there is time to join if you would like to participate in some serious official business.
Non-members may safely ignore this:
On November 10th- nearly six months later than usual thanks to ‘Covid’- will be the Annual General Meeting at which will be processed all the usual topics such as membership and money matters, the upcoming year’s office bearers voted in, and more.
Might the ‘more’ part interest you? If there is a Rose Society matter you would like raised at the Zoom AGM that is not yet listed in the Agenda as up for discussion, you can have it added when you register beforehand (essential). Your community welcomes your participation.
Here is general information about the AGM, with instructions for registering to vote.
Here is the latest agenda.
Here for download are notice of the upcoming AGM and the minutes of the previous AGM, in one pdf file.

The time and date of the AGM:
8pm Tuesday 10th of November. On Zoom.
Non-members may safely ignore the following temporarily mysterious acronmyn:
Changes have been made to the Constitution (many thanks to David Beard), including a new mission statement for the RSV, and an updated Constitution.
A Special General Meeting to discuss and resolve only this matter, was held on Zoom on October 13th.
Here are the Minutes
“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.”
Fortunate indeed are we if we can go outside, as many of us are once again confined to home, continuing the quiet contest against the spread of ‘Corona’.
It was hoped things might be safe enough for the RSV to recommence meetings come July. Time has really sprinted; it is now July, and it grieves us to have to admit that this would not at all be a safe moment to meet…nor is it possible to guess when might be.
We are so looking forward to resuming all our happy-making social activities around roses, so looking forward to seeing each other again. Dear member, we hope it will be soon.
As with increasingly leathery squeaky clean hands that crave cocoa butter, we keep being vigilant, keep up the distancing, we send warm smiles of encouragement. More power to us all.
We’ll keep you appraised of any updates as they come to light.
