We have recently heard the sad news that David Way died on 9 October. He was one of our founder members and did a great deal to guide us to become the successful group we have been over the last 30 years. It was he who started organizing garden tours and we are still visiting gardens outside the county boundary today. David was generous with his wide knowledge and encouraged us with his enthusiasm for gardens, plants and the people who grow them. He is one of the people to whom we refer when talking about our plants, “Oh, I first had that from David Way”. How better to remember someone than that?

There will, of course, be a full obituary in the Winter Newsletter.
