|Sunday 26th May 2.30pm||Annual General Meeting - PLEASE READ ON CAREFULLY - THE FUTURE OF YOUR LOCAL FUNGUS GROUP IS POSSIBLY IN THE BALANCE!
This meeting is of particular significance to members as the future of the group will be under discussion. Derek and Penny both plan to
move house away from the county by / during the autumn, thus the full foray programme already planned may need curtailing and the
future of the group is in question and should be discussed at this meeting. If you want to see BFG continuing to perform what we
consider to be an important role in the understanding and conservation of such a vital kingdom of natural history, please give
your support and come along. Derek asks that you phone to let him know if you are planning to come (01296-640923). After the
official business, time permitting there will be a photo show of fungi found during recent years - please bring any electronic images you
would like to share with members.
