Mid Southern Group

Daffodil enthusiasts felt that there was need of a group in the central southern area of England and so The Mid Southern Daffodil Group was formed in 1989 with the intention of covering Berks, Surrey, West Sussex, Bucks, Oxon and S.E. Hants areas.

It has been successful in this quest and has an enthusiastic, non fee paying membership, currently around 60 members.

The group usually holds a daffodil show at its Chobham venue, the date of which is the last Sunday in March (this date can unfortunately clash with changing to BST resulting in “jet lagged” bleary eyed competitors!). Each October the group holds a bulb sale and general meeting at Virginia Water, a last chance to meet up before the winter months close in.

The present committee ably led by Vic Coe, secretary Alex Burke, George and Mrs Margaret Oakley, Malcolm Hill, Stafford Salt, Mrs Garry Aston-Coe Mrs Tammy Smithers, Graham Thirkettle and Den Hawkins offers a warm welcome to old and prospective members interested in our hobby.

Congratulations !
Vic Coe was made a Vice President of The Daffodil Society in 2016 but unfortunately was not able to attend the annual dinner. for his presentation.
We were delighted that he could join us for the Annual General Meeting on March 5 2017 where he received his Vice President’s scroll from Daffodil Society President Jackie Petherbridge.
Vic has served for many years as a judge and Chairman of the Daffodil Society : Mid Southern group not to mention many years as Steward for the RHS daffodil shows. There is still no retirement on the horizon as Vic is now the Treasurer of the DS: Mid Southern group. Many thanks and Congratulations Vic.
