Review of the TGA AGM, members meeting and visit to Soverign Turf.
Willie Baird in his second year opened the AGM with thanks to the warm weather of spring, although the warm day he noted that we are in uncertain times with or without the weather playing its part. Keeping with the sunnier tone he noted that "recession is behind us; we just need to keep our confidence".
Thank you to Tim Mudge for all the hard work he has done over the last 10 years. We would like to give a warm welcome to Tom Anderson who has been co-opted onto the council to provide technical advice to TGA members.
