Present: W. Mellor, A. Moorhouse, J. Hardwick J. Wright, W. Tunnicliffe, J. Taylor and I. Whitworth (Hon. Sec.)
The minutes of last meeting were read approved and signed.
The question of introducing professional gardeners was again discussed and it was unanimously resolved to permit them to exhibit but only in the names of their employers – it being understood that Lady Catherine Milnes Gaskell through Mr F.W. Tyson her gardener –
would exhibit on these terms.
The Hon. Secretary was also instructed to write Mr Wells, gardener to Mrs Wentworth, Woolley Park, asking him to obtain Mrs Wenthworth’s permission for him to exhibit on the same terms.
Wm Mellor Chairman
