Tonight was our AGM.

An evening of celebration of everything and everyone that is LEAF.Vegetable fun!

And who better to help us celebrate than Madame Zucchini and her amazing vegetable show?

After we’d finished all the ‘serious business’ (…details in a bit…), she came on stage and showed us the fun you can have with vegetables, including her rendition of the film ‘Jaws’, complete with the main characters, and an evil looking shark with big teeth made from an aubergine.

She then handed out paper bags, each filled with an assortment of vegetable ‘chunks’ and matchisticks, and told us we should all make our own vegetable ‘creations’ and there would be a prize at the end.

And what fun we had!Proud Mr Potato Head.

Here’s Elaine showing off her ‘Mr Potato Head’.

Of course, the children were in heaven.  Getting to ‘play with their food’ without mum telling them off!

This shot is of one of our youngest ‘Plotters’, Lisa, proudly showing off her creation.Proud Lisa!

All in all, everyone had fun with Kyle eventually being declared the winner.

He won a prize of a limited edition hand-made ‘Madame Zucchini’ greetings card.

As it was our AGM, we had some serious ‘official business’ to get through.  Recently our chairman, Mick informed us that he wished to stand down, so the post was open.

Initially, both Julie -a long-standing committee member and I had put our names forward, and it would have gone to a vote of the LEAF members, but in the end, Julie decided to withdraw her application.

The rest of the committee were standing again, so after a ‘block vote’ of all LEAF members, we were all duly elected to the committee, with myself as chairman.

Madness?  Possibly.

But it will be fun…
