Thank you to everyone who came and made our Open day a success

A lovely spring afternoon encouraged a record number of visitors to make the journey to Newtimber Place yesterday afternoon.  In fact 740 visitors in total, found their way to the gardens to enjoy a stroll and afternoon tea. The atmosphere  was both relaxing and convivial.

The Clays and I would like to thank everyone for coming – both visitors and volunteers and to those who waited so patiently to park and manoeuvre their vehicles around the property.

A grand total of 4000 pounds was raised for charity from the entrance money and the teas.

 Andrew and Carol Clay, the owners of Newtimber Place, put in a tremendous amount of effort, as always, to make the day a success.  I would like to say ‘Well Done’ and thank you for sharing your delightful garden with us all.

Goes to our wonderful volunteers at Nigs’ Garden (Dyke Farm House) Poynings. The lovely ladies Marissa and Jill have put in many hours and we are grateful for their continued commitment, sheer hard work and ‘joie de vive’ in bringing the garden together for Open Day on June 29th in aid of Martlets Hospice.
