Outings to Saville Gardens, afternoon tea at Peck's Farm.Birthday meal at the Swan, a visit to Ashridge Gardens and a Waterways canal trip with a fish and chip lunch.
A Harvest Supper was enjoyed by all.
We collected food for the food bank, and also collected gifts for under privileged families, to be distributed by the local Salvation Army.
I'm sorry to inform you that this summer's Open Gardens event has sadly been cancelled due to there being too few offers of gardens to visit. One explanation for this may be the serious damage done in December by 10 days of the temperature being 14 degrees below zero. This has been compounded by the subsequent wet spring followed by the current period of hot and dry weather. If you have a lovely garden and would like to help ensure the Open Gardens event takes place next year please contact Gordon Gray.
