Hebes in Plumpton


I was lucky enough to be invited to speak at the Hebe Society AGM last weekend, apart from the warm welcome the main thing that struck me was how much the Douglas Chalk Hebe Collection at Plumpton College had grown! They were about 10cm tall when I last saw them.

And it was good to witness the Society supporting maintenance of the Collection financially as well as in spirit.
