Ann Kemp, 2022
Collectors Circle - Tree Planting

Following two years of Covid restrictions the group of eleven members met and discussed the future and viability of trying to continue the meetings.

This was sad for Eric Fowell one of the founder members 42 years ago.

It was agreed to close the group and on April 27th we had a final meeting in Hall Park where we had arranged to plant a Rowan Tree.  An Afternoon Tea was enjoyed in Rushden Hall with the Mayor and Consort.  The group funds have been distributed to Rushden Charities which we felt was a fitting end.

Eric was unable to attend but we did present him with a gift later.
