Dot became a Vice President in 2005 and was elected as President at the Club’s A.G.M. on 6th November 2007.
She was one of the original seven founder members of Solent Fuchsia Club. Indeed, the Club has since progressed under her expertise and enthusiasm. Dot was also a regular member of the committee for a great number of years before finally retiring to start her life as Mrs Waters. She still dedicates a considerable amount of her time to the Club and has exhibited many incredible quality full baskets at our Annual Shows. But we believe her true forte, and she has huge amounts of knowledge in the fuchsia world, are the Species.
A more than energetic personality that finds nothing too great a challenge.
His knowledge on fuchsias and his expertise on general horticulture is exceptional. He has been a member of the Club’s representative quiz team on numerous occasions, and very successfully too.
Except for the short period 2000–2001, Mary has held the position of Treasurer since 1980. During this time she has kept control of the Club’s finances with amazing professionalism.
She was voted the Clubs’ Chairperson in 2003, a position she held with high regard until handing over the title at the 2011 A.G.M.
A very dedicated individual and pleasant with it.
Doreen can always be relied on, whatever the situation.
Eddie has been in charge of selling plants at our Annual Shows for countless years after the late Vic Restall handed over the reigns. He can also be relied upon to bring his stock of goods to sell at any of our monthly meetings for the benefit of the members who happen to wander to his Sales Table. So far he has managed to raise quite an amount of money that has subsidized our Club funds.
George regularly volunteers to give a helping hand whenever any assistance is required.
We are positive he will be a welcome addition to the committee.
