October 2011: The Androsace
Group is in the process of being wound down.
A final newsletter was
distributed to members in September 2011 and included the
The Androsace Group will be
changing in the autumn of 2011 to become an
group and part of the Alpine Garden Society's web Forum.
With the help
of the AGS, The Androsace Group will appear as a ‘discussion
topic’ entitled 'Androsace' so it can
continue to act as a resource of the Group's newsletters
publications but also as a picture gallery and a discussion
site for matters concerning the cultivation of
of the existing printed material may take a bit longer, but
I hope that the Androsace topic will become
active this coming autumn and spring.
The need for
the change is simply that no one comes forward to share the
task of running the group, and the
Treasurer, Editor, Membership Secretary and Seed
Manager need a
rest. Repeated appeals for help have not been answered. We
hope that the Forum approach will mean
that Androsace discussion and comment can continue
and perhaps be
an easier way to contribute.
There will no
longer be a membership fee - members will only need to
register with the AGS Web Site.
Thank you to
all contributors of written articles, conversations and seed
over the years.
Members are now requested to send their
Androsace seed to the Alpine Garden Society Seed
changeover has been completed, the Group's accounts will be
finalised and all residual monies will be handed over to the
Alpine Garden Society.
