About Us


The Membership Committee usually meets three times a year.  It supports the Membership Secretary in recruiting new members and maintaining memberships.  This committee also arranges the publication of the annual CGT Journal and regular Newsletters, as well as organising publicity events and a programme of visits and lectures.

The Recorders’ Committee produces the CGT Garden Records and usually meets twice a year.  All CGT recorders are members of the committee.
