Visit to Hatfield House on 25th April 2019
30 April 2019
Members of the walking group enjoyed a leisurely walk through Bushey Park on a lovely spring day. The walk started from the large car park at the Hampton Court gate end and headed through the Woodland Gardens towards the Hampton Gate entrance and The Upper Lodge Water Gardens. After that we headed back towards the Pheasantry Café and lunch.
Leonardslee was wonderful, well worth a visit. The azaleas, rhododendrons etc. were superb. The gardener told us they have a 20 year plan for the gardens. If you book on line it is cheaper. The dolls house is stunning and not as you would imagine. We all felt the dolls house was worth the entrance fee alone. Bear in mind lots of steep terrain.
Our plant sale at the June WI meeting. If any WI members have any plants we would be very grateful.
Some members of the gardening group tidied up and added new plants to the flower beds at the Ashtead PMH.
Ashtead Village Day 8th June 2019
Despite the weather, Village Day was a great success. The strong wind in the morning made erecting the gazebos quite challenging but with the help of some of our husbands the job was made easier. There was a lovely selection of cakes, jams and marmalades for sale all made by our members, plus a raffle for a hamper of fresh produce. The draw for the raffle was made by Chris Hunt, the Independent Councillor for Ashtead Village Ward. The winning ticket was number 831 and was won by Brenda Blythe.
Once again, a huge thank you to everyone who worked so hard both before and on the day.
