WSBEorchids

Subscription is back!

Some of you may remember the newsletter subscription that was in place for a brief period a few months ago.  It was a good idea of mine – especially when I had a large amount of free time to write about what we were doing.  But as the GCSEs arrived I confess to neglecting our little newsletter…

It was during our little wsbeorchids-team meeting that we realised that there was no need to write a newsletter – we update the website and people can get updates from there…

Yep, you guessed it, you can now get E-Mail Updates from WSBEOrchids.  Now there’s no need to pay our humble site a visit every few days, simply sign into your e-mail and get our updates along with all those other newsletters!

Sikkim photos at last

It’s been long awaited – and very frustrating for me because it wouldn’t work – but now we have a fool proof way of displaying photos as Slide shows!

Thanks to Google we should now be able to have photos from all of the expeditions, shows and other events from the past uploaded to the ‘photos’ section of our Media Libraries.  Watch this space

On TV!!

We appeared on BBC1 at 7:30 today.  Zoe Barnes talked about conservation and our Gangtok Schools project (yes to anyone who noticed the family connection!)  If you missed it, the video is online, right here, right now.  Simply click here or visit the media library.

A personal record for me as it has only taken 1 and a quarter hours to extract the recording and upload it!

GOLD!!!

To-the-point, I thought to myself while choosing a title to this post!  We’ve got a Gold Medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower show and we’re all a little bit excited!

The display looks fantastic and I would like to say a public ‘well-done’ to Ben Stokes, Luke Lucas and Simon Pugh-Jones who made up the set up team.  They’ve put a lot of effort in and it shows!

For those of you already asking yourselves when we’ll be on TV, we’re being filmed tomorrow (Wednesday) and could be on any time after that, though we’re 90% sure it will be the Wednesday show.
