Newsletter History.

The earliest newsletters we know about were edited by Mr. and Mrs. Harper in 1964. There is a report in the Journal Newsletter (March 1965) saying that Mr. and Mrs. Harper had seen the newsletter through it’s first year. This was all we knew about them until three issues turned up earlier this year. The editors were Colin and Carole Harper and the newsletters are two foolscap pages stapeled together at the top. Issue 1 has a detailed account of the early history of the branch.

We also now have seven issues of Mancunian Cactivities. The paper copies now held in the archive have come from the collection of Austin Fitzjohn, Secretary to the branch in the 1960’s. Gordon Rowley and Brendan Burke had previously kindly lent copies of the first six issues, so that they could be scanned for our website. Whether there are any more issues from late 1967 onwards we do not know.

The editor in this case was Les Nyman, but it appears that the first issue is Vol 1, #1 with no mention of the newsletters from 1964. All issues run into a double figure page count, and have articles about potting mixes, watering regimes and recent shows and nursery visits. There is an article by Colin Partington and one by Harold Gaulton.

No information is known about any newsletters from the 1970’s. Can you help, please?

Moving into the 1980’s there were five newsletters issued, edited by Les Pearcy. Les has kindly donated copies for our website. These issues are A5 in size and contain 12 or 16 pages.

There were some newsletters in the early 1990’s edited by Peter and Judith Schofield. The branch doesn’t have copies of these, and would welcome them if any one can supply copies.

Once we reach the late 1990’s the editor became Peter Bint. This newsletter was A4 in size. There were 18 newsletters in total, from two sides of A4, upto bumper issues with ten pages.

Into the 2000’s and the editor was Ivor Crook. The newsletter was named Gaultonia after our much missed President Harold Gaulton. More recently the editors have been John and Sylvia Jones. From 2012 onwards the newsletters have been edited by Peter Bint once again with help from Chris Leather.

The branch have copies of these newsletters and hope to make them available on the website in due course.

We have a small number of Sheffield newsletters that can be viewed here: Sheffield Newsletters

There is also a booklet produced by the Bolton and District Cactus Society. Several of the Manchester members also attended Bolton meetings and contributed to the booklet. Twenty-One
