MEETINGS ARE SUSPENDED FOR NOW…
Dear fellow rose lovers,
as we all hunker down and stay cosy and as solitary as possible, to all do our bit to keep the community safe from the new Coronavirus, it has been decided not to gather together for meetings for a while. We’re not sure how long, but as information about meetings comes to hand we will update the site.
We’re eager to resume once it is safe and responsible to do so, and we all look forward very much to seeing our rose-loving friends again as soon as possible.
…as many topics as you could possibly think of (and all the topics you’ve always wanted to learn about) are presented by experts at the monthly meetings.
Meetings are usually finished by 9.30pm, followed by supper.
At most meetings a mini rose show competition is held where members may practice their show bench skills and new members may learn how to show roses and get on-the-spot advice from the experts.
Bring your roses and share their loveliness with all.
Although this is a members only event, visitors are absolutely welcome to come along and dip a toe in the rosy water. Why not bring a friend?
Meetings usually take place on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, BUT MEETINGS ARE NOT TAKING PLACE AT ALL FOR NOW, AS OF 18th MARCH 2020.
TEMPORARY MEETING VENUE!
Melbourne has suffered hailstorms recently and these have damaged the roof of our usual meeting place, St James Anglican Church Hall. A new temporary venue has been arranged. Details below:
