Jennifer Newman, Wimbledon Garden Club

Catherine Horwood has given the Wimbledon Garden Club two excellent Zoom talks this year which were both informative, interesting and entertaining.   She has a natural way of delivering the information and her slides are excellent.   We have booked more talks from her!

Corrine Mitchell, Shelswell Garden Club

Zoom worked well with Catherine’s talk – we could see her screen perfectly and the photographs were ideal for the talk.  Would recommend her to other Garden Clubs
