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.
