We were pleased to learn that our member Melvyn Jope has been appointed president of the Cyclamen Society. His interest in cyclamen is well known and some members will have met Melvyn when he took part in MPG visits to Jordan, Armenia, Crete and the Peloponnese, and many others enjoyed his talk about wild plants in Greece which can be watched again here.

This photo shows Melvyn on his recent trip to Gramos, Greece.
