The Annual General Meeting  of the Garden Club was held on Thursday, July 26 the new  committee now consists of Hilton Suton (President), Fay Macartney (Secretary) Wendy Reading (Treasurer) Alex Lucke and Margaret Dawson (Vice President) Jan Rose (Public Officer).

The Bingara Garden Club has had a very successful year and have managed to maintain a healthy membership. 

A major undertaking for the year was the hugely successful Mini Expo held last October at the Roxy Theatre which raised over $1000.00 for the club. An impressive turnout of 230 people attended the Mini Expo, where a range of speakers covered a wide range of topics.

Throughout the year the Garden club has continued their routine undertakings like the monthly drive by garden awards, get well wishes, garden hints and the much appreciated Birthday flowers to members and residents of Touriandi.

The Bingara Garden Club is looking forward to another successful year and invites anyone interested to become a member.

The Club’s motto is “Friendship Through Gardening” and the Club strives to encourage and promote gardening and beautification of the town. 

Outdoor meetings are held, often in private gardens to discuss, plan and share experiences and enjoy inputs from specialist speakers on the fourth Thursday of each month, except January.
