Although the Autumn show was cancelled due to Covid19, Fleur Anderson visited Site 2 in last Sunday’s warm sunshine.
The Autumn show planned for Sunday September 13th is cancelled. In a message yesterday, Helen Finch, chair of the RGS said:
Very regretfully we have decided to cancel the Autumn show. The R number has gone above 1 and there are reports of Covid cases within West Putney, so we feel that the responsible action is to cancel.
The store will still open on Sunday morning

and, a very warm welcome to our new President.
Fleur Anderson, the MP for Putney, Roehampton and Southfields, has kindly accepted our invitation to be President of the RGS. We look forward to offering Fleur a warm welcome at future events.
What a wonderful invitation. I would be very honoured to be your President and would love to come …. to as many events as I can. I love gardening myself and would love to learn a lot from you all and see the outcome of all the lockdown work you have all been doing.
Work is well underway to provide a much needed improved water supply for site 3. New pipework has been laid – involving much work by the ‘Ditch Witch’ trench digger. Next should come some new water tanks, and then Thames Water must connect our new supply. The works are funded by Enable.
