Liz McDonnell has been in touch with news of a 20th birthday party for Somerset Rare Plants Group (SRPG). Over to Liz:

"Somerset Rare Plants Group is 20 years old this year. We are celebrating with an Anniversary Conference to be held on Sunday October 8th 2017 at Monkton Heathfield, near Taunton. 

"We have some really good talks lined up from distinguished and inspirational outside speakers and some of our own very knowledgeable members, and it will be a very informative and enjoyable day. It is a great opportunity to meet up with other members of SRPG and to share in the birthday celebrations with a buffet lunch and birthday tea. We are also inviting botanical colleagues from neighbouring counties, so it will be an interesting SW botanists gathering, but any BSBI members are very welcome. 

"Take a look at the flyer here; if you'd like to join us for the SRPG 20th birthday party, you can download and fill out this booking form and send it to srpgconference@yahoo.com to book your place and to let us know of any dietary needs for the buffet lunch. Further information about the conference programme and venue will be sent to you when you have booked your place".
