July 2020 - Members Trees - While In Lock-In
As our club activities have had to be cancelled due to the Corona Virus outbreak, our club members have photographed some trees as a way of maintaining some club interaction. At each monthly meeting we would have a display of members’ trees and this is a way to continue that tradition. Some trees are work in progress, and some are nearer their final design. We look forward to the time when we can meet again and resume our normal club meetings.
