for Steph: laying logs for a new earth seat and with delicious chocolate cakes for morning break, courtesy of Clare and Jacqueline…so much more fun than being pampered on a birthday!

Meanwhile: primulas were planted, bringing colour to the entrance to the Gardens; there was lots of grass cutting and strimming to tidy up the kitchen garden and Glade; and planting and weeding in the Italian Garden & kitchen garden.

Thanks also to all volunteers who made it such a fun, relaxed Open Day last Sunday.
