At selected garden
Leader: Ann Darling
This group is open to all U3A members of like-minded people who enjoy, or have enjoyed gardening, and love visiting other gardens for inspiration and pleasure. Gardens visited range from splendid manor houses to small town gardens, all beautiful in their own setting.
This group meets on the first Tuesday in the months of May to September, when we meet at the garden at 2.20 pm to start off with a tour of the garden, followed by tea and cake. Costs are generally under £10 per head for the visit and refreshments, and most of the garden owners donate the total or most of the funds to charity. The gardens visited are mainly chosen from the National Garden Scheme booklet, which is published each year.
We are a very friendly group and try to arrange car sharing as much as possible. Where there are number restrictions on a visit, it is on a first come first served basis.
Our visits for 2020 were all cancelled due to Covid 19. However, most garden owners have been too pleased to rearrange for 2021, so hopefully we can recommence our visits next May.
