News Update – April ’13

Cancellation of TalkTalk Email Accounts

As you will know, almost all of my personal emails – plus most of the circulated Pulham Newsletters – have been sent from my main account at claude@hitching.net, although, at times of pressure, I have sometimes used my ISP address at claude.hitching@talktalk.net.   This note is to let you know that my main email address will continue to be at claude@hitching.net, but, as we have now switched our ISP from TalkTalk to Sky, the old TalkTalk address will no longer be available.   If I have a lot of emails to circulate at any one time in the future – as with future Newsletters, for example – I now have a backup address at rocks4me@sky.com, but, under normal circumstances, my main address should continue to be the one used for routine correspondence.

Dates for the Diary

Our presentation to Members of the Friends of Lowewood and the Hoddesdon Society on 5th April went extremely well.   There was a capacity sudience – in fact, additional chairs were needed to accommodate the demand – and we all had a most enjoyable evening.   Val Christman and I are consequently looking forward very much indeed to our next presentations, which are as follows:

Saturday, 18th May, 10.30 a.m.

Shaven Crown, Shipton-under-Wychwood, Oxfordshire, OX7 6BA.   The Oxfordshire County Gardens Trust.    The presentations will be followed by a light lunch, and a tour of the Pulham gardens at Shipton Court.   Organiser:  Sally Stradling, mail@sallystradling.co.uk,  01993 812278

SOLD  OUT – 6 Weeks in Advance!

Thursday, 26th September, 2 p.m.

St Paul’s Parish Centre, De La Beche Road, Sketty, Swansea, on the NE tip of Singleton Park, Swansea.   West Glamorgan Branch of the Welsh Historic Gardens Trust.   Organiser:  Ann Gardner, hughgardner@virginmedia.com.

Saturday, 28th September, 10.15 a.m.

Dewstow Golf Club, Caerwent, Monmouthshire, South Wales, NP26 5AH.    Welsh Historic Gardens Trust.    After the presentations and book-signing, there will be a light buffet lunch, followed by tours of the wonderful Gardens of Dewstow – NOT TO BE MISSED!   Admission £25 inclusive of lunch and garden tour.   Organiser:  Helena Gerrish, helenagerrish@gmail.com, 01600 860005

We hope that you will be able to attend one of these events, and very much look forward to meeting you there.   We have prepared a special DVD montage of more than 200 images that illustrate the tremendous range and versatility of Pulham’s work – to be shown during the assembly of guests, prior to the presentations – and signed copies of my book will be available at the Special Presentation price of £25, which means that the price discount will represent a very significant contribution towards the price of the ticket.   So, book early to ensure your place, and get there early to enjoy the pictures.

The ‘Pulhams of Broxbourne’ Exhibition

The Pulhams of Broxbourne Exhibition, which opened at the Epping Forest District Museum, at 39-41 Sun Street, Waltham Abbey EM9 1EL, on 9th February, will continue until Monday, 6th May, afther which it is planned to include it in the Touring Exhibitions Group programme, which will create the possibility of enabling it to be seen in other parts of Hertfordshire and around the U.K.

The pulham.org.uk Website

The statistics that I receive in relation to the use of my website indicate that visitors are gradually accessing more pages per visit as time goes by.   This is great news, as it shows that people are getting more and more interested in exploring the scope of subject matter that is available there.   This has encouraged me to prepare a Site Map in which all the pages are listed, and I hope this will be of interest, as well as of turure use.

At the time of this Newsletter, there are almost 80 pages of information available, all of which were listed in the Newsletter circulated to subscribers.   If you would like to receive a circulated copy, please contact Claude at claude@hitching.net.
