Following the formal aspects of the AGM, we were very pleased to welcome as our speaker, Jane Markham, Manager of the Warden Abbey community vineyard.
Some of us were unaware of the existence of the vineyard, but it has a long and varied history and Jane shared some of it with us. Now a community vineyard, it is a not-for-profit venture and works in partnership with various organisations to provide social, health and educational benefits for Bedfordshire.
At the end of a most interesting and informative talk we were able to taste some of the wine made from grapes grown in the vineyards. Very nice it was too.
