Chairman, Lewis Kent thanked everyone for coming and for all they do to provide a place much enjoyed by the community at large.
Friends Annual General Meeting and Summer Garden Party
Friends had the opportunity  to meet their new president, Rupert Bowen, who was welcomed to the meeting by chairman, Lewis Kent. Lewis then proposed a warm vote of thanks  to outgoing secretary Colin Mattingly. Colin has been associated with the Friends for 29 years in a variety of roles and will now continue volunteering as a warden.
After the business meeting Friends enjoyed refreshments in the Garden on a perfect summer's evening.
Laurie Woods
It was with great sadness that the Friends of the Physic Garden lost one of their long time volunteers in the recent death of Laurie Woods. Laurie brought to the Garden his expertise especially relating to 17th Century vegetable growing and until recently was responsible for the flower bed alongside the West wall. He was also a regular contributor to the Newsletter writng under the nom de plume of 'Adam the Gardener' providing tips and advice on many aspects of ancient gardening. Laurie (pictured on left) might also be remembered for his skill in making damson gin!
