2017: Mon 30th Jan, there was a good turnout for the 'Wimborne in Bloom' Annual General Meeting, in spite of the wet and unpleasant weather conditions prevailing that evening. Chairman Richard Nunn thanked the many volunteers for their contributions and dedication over the last year. Treasurer Terry Wheeler reported that for the first time in many years there had been a small overall loss - 44 pence. This being the 25th year of Wimborne in Bloom there are several extra fundraising events being organised (details to be revealed soon) and it is hoped that good attendance at these events will mean that Wimborne can be yet again decked in blooms for 2017.
