Any queries about any of the open days or events, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me via pm on here or via email at [email protected] or at the Carnivorous Plant Society Website http://www.thecps.org.uk/contact.php

Details for any other event will be updated on here, the CPS website and on the CPS facebook website.

Remember that car sharing to open days and events is always a good idea as it saves you a few pennies that could be spent on more plants :)

If you would like to visit Chester Zoo and are not yet a CPS member, please remeber that it is cheaper to join the CPS than it is to buy a day ticket into Chester Zoo plus you get the chance to visit RHS Wisley for free and Kew Gardens with certain restricted areas also available to access during our visit.

I look forward to seeing many of you over the next few months.

Regards

I see you have put a few CP talks on the meetings calender this year, and I think I can add myself to that.

I am speaking to the Fuchsia and Pelargonium Society about CPs on Monday 20th May at The Conservative Club, Church Lane, Walthamstow, London E17 9RW (http://www.communigate.co.uk/london/fuchsia/page38.phtml). I seem to remember that it starts at 20:00, but will confirm...

This was arranged through Dennis B.

Moral support is always welcome!

Hi Andy

Yes there will be a Kew visit this year. I am just waiting for them to get back to me with a date. Nick (who used to be our guide) was promoted and so someone else has taken over his role and they are just getting to grips with everything. I will post up the Kew visit as soon as I know the date.
