I regret to inform you that Jack Lamb, an honorary life member of the society for many years, passed away last Sunday Afternoon. He was an expert on the fuchsia species and held a national collection in the UK and he was an enthusiast and a great supporter of the SIG groups and the BFS. Our condolences go to Joan and the rest of his family.

I have made some updates to the website.
The history pages have been restored and fuchsia News updated.
I have also put back the Article Downloads in the members section
The Facebook link has been changed to the new page as the old page has now been deleted

Plant Distribution: It seems delivery of the plants by post was sporadic. If you have not got yours yest please contact either the secretary or Carol.

Finally I heard a few weeks ago that one of our overseas members, Willi Grund had sadly passed away. His son Jürgen has posted up a list of fuchsias his father had created. You can access it via the link. (Site is in German but the list is English)

Plant Distribution
All the free members plants by post were posted out on Monday. You should get them very shortly. The committee would like to thank Carol Gubler who undertook this task single handedly on behalf of the society.

For those of you collecting their plants from participating nurseries we are advising you to contact the nursery as most of them are currently closed to the public. Most of them will allow you to collect once they are open again. For those nurseries with a mail order service it may be possible if you order from them they will include your free plants in the package.
