This will be my last regular weekly blog,I’ve done it for over 6 years now,and the time has come to hand over to a fresh blogger,to keep everyone updated with Green Fingers news.
Next weeks blog,and subsequent ones will be done by our Vice Chairman,Graham Harris.
It’s been a pleasure doing this blog,and listening to your comments about it when you see me around,and also to keep ex Camposolers,and holiday home owners in the UK and elsewhere up to date with events.
