Our Spring 2013 meeting and AGM took place in April at Bridges Community Centre, Monmouth.  After a brief AGM Stephanie Tyler talked about Wildlife in Our Meadows, followed by a delicious supper made by members. 
Our Autumn meeting in October included talks from local members on their experience of looking after old meadows and creating new ones, followed by a buffet and glass of wine. 
Open days 2012 - This year we  organised a number of Open Days between May and July in the hope that we wouldn't be rained off on all of them!  There were identification refresher courses in May, and our Open Days were in June and July.
