Message from our Chair

Welcome to Macclesfield and East Cheshire’s Branch of the BCSS. We have a thriving Branch and are always happy to give a warm welcome to newcomers. We are fortunate to have an enthusiastic group of people in the Branch, who are diverse in their ages and interests but all have a common bond in their delight in growing and admiring Cacti and Succulents.

Like so many other similar groups, our activities were severely curtailed by the pandemic for much of last year. This shows no sign of easing very quickly in 2021. However, the Branch has now purchased a full Zoom licence and we hope to start offering more Zoom meetings, in place of the Branch meetings, through the early part of 2021. This is in addition to the excellent series of weekly Zoom talks, hosted by the BCSS (see here) that are well worth trying. Keep an eye on our meeting schedule for up-to-date information as the year develops.

Peter, Chair.
