Renovation work update (4)

July 11, 2016

The stone wall in front of the gardener’s hut in the Italian Garden is being renovated, and the path along to the hut is now closed off so that it can be relaid to make it a smoother ride for wheelchairs and buggies.


Sadly one of the acers beside the steps up from the Horse Lane entrance has suddenly died.

We are sorry to hear of the death of Joe Guest, one of the founders of The Friends when it was first set up back in January 1989. He’d always taken a keen interest in the Gardens and though unable to walk there in recent years kept an eye out from his Broadlands home.
