ABOUT THE SOCIETY

 

The Society was formed in September 1999 especially for Streptocarpus (Cape Primrose) growers with small, medium or large collections.  We welcome new members with a wide range of growing knowledge and experience. Members range from beginners with a few plants on their windowsills to expert growers with many years of experience. We are happy to help new members to increase their expertise and enjoyment of streptocarpus growing.

URGENT NOTICE FOR ALL BRITISH STREPTOCARPUS SOCIETY MEMBERS

 

Since we despatched our June Newsletter to members we have unfortunately, due to their increased work commitments, received the resignations of our Chairman and Secretary, Ian and Liz Davis.

I would like to thank them both on your behalf for their hard work and enthusiasm in carrying out their respective duties.

We will therefore need to elect and appoint a replacement for each post at the AGM on Saturday 16th July. The AGM follows the Annual BSS show which we hope will be attended by as many of you who can make it.

If you are interested in participating in the running of the society and would like to be considered for either the position of Secretary or Chairman, would you please email your details, e.g. name, address and membership number to the following email address.

karenm_moore@sky.com

We hope that you, like your existing committee members, will feel that this is a worthwhile society and deserves your support to encourage existing and new members in the cultivation of the beautiful Streptocarpus.

Roger Hine - BSS Membership Secretary
