Garden Visits – Summer

1st Tuesday

At selected garden

Leader: Ann Darling
At 14:20
1st Tuesday of the month, meeting at the garden 2.20 pm for 2.30 pm start.
I’m happy to say that our visits will be able to take place, starting in May, but at a later date than our usual one in order to overcome the number restrictions of meeting outdoors. Other restrictions will still be in place eg. social distancing and travelling in the same household, or your bubble.
Our May visit will take place on Tuesday 18 May to Cadenham Manor, Foxham, Chippenham, SN15 4NH. This 4 acre garden comprises a series of rooms around a listed C17 manor house and dovecote. Entry will be £10 plus a refreshment charge. Please let me know by Tuesday 4 May if you would like to come. There is plenty of parking so please travel in your household or bubble.
On Tuesday 1 June we visit East End Manor, Bulford Road, Durrington, SP4 8HB. This garden has been extensively renovated by the new owners and has been recommended by the owner of a nearby NGS property. Entry will be £8 Including tea and cake. Please let me know by Monday 17 May if you would like to come. Parking spaces are available in the courtyard.
For our visit on Tuesday 6 July we visit Cockspur Thorns, Berwick St James, SP3 4TS. This 2 1/2 acre garden was completely redesigned 20 years ago with new developments since, with roses, herbaceous borders , shrubbery, secret pond garden etc.. Entry will be £10 for visit, tea and cake. Numbers are restricted to 25. Parking is available in the drive. Please confirm with me by Monday 21 June if you plan to come.
Visits are open to all U3A members but I need to know by the stated dates if you plan to come along in order to confirm numbers with the garden owners. Where there are number restrictions, it is a first come first served basis.
For all visits please arrange travelling within the government restrictions. Thank you all for your cooperation.
