A very successful launch was held at The Tea Rooms, with a large number of people attending. Following Anne's short talk about Shirley Hibberd's links with Stoke Newington, everyone enjoyed the 'Victorian-themed' snacks that were laid on.
Tim kindly wrote the humorous and thought-provoking foreword to Anne's book. To those who don't know (read the book?!) Shirley Hibberd was the very first editor of Amateur Gardening in 1884. With Tim as the current editor it was very pleasant to close a 128-year circle.
