  1. My goodness!!! Ros! Have just learned of her passing…… have spent the last three state exhibitions getting to know her, working out the finer points of winning Lemon curd and Marmalade, walking round the exhibits having a good old chin wag….had a good natter at Tallangatta Read the next State Exhib is in St Arnaud 2023 and first thought was I will catch up with Ros! How very very sad. Will miss her. Heather
