It is with great sadness that we must report that our President, Andrew Leslie, died suddenly on Saturday 23rd December.
To say that Andrew was a stalwart of the Cornwall Garden Society is an understatement. He was the Cornwall Garden Society.
He had loyally served the Society for more than 20 years – as President, Trustee, Chairman and Show Committee Chairman – and was the guiding light of our Spring Flower Show.
Andrew was also a loyal friend who engendered our utmost respect.
His passion for horticulture, wise counsel and joie de vivre inspired all who encountered him, and he adroitly navigated the CGS through many important developments, determined that the Society would thrive.
We shall miss him deeply, remember him fondly and honour his legacy by ensuring the continuing success of the CGS.
In the meantime, we convey our heartfelt condolences to Andrew’s wife and family, and pay our respects to a man we have much to thank for and hold dear in our hearts.
