Coach Trip to Preen Manor in 2014 - sitting in the sun, admiring the garden

 

 

An excellent evening with Chris Beardshaw, Christine Guest (new group chair) on the left and Angela Dodwell (ex-group chair) on the right. 

 

Another slightly damp and chilly outing in July, but a great garden - Abbeywood in Cheshire 

 

 

On a wet and cold day in June, we went to Jessamine Cottage in Shropshire.  All enjoyed it, in spite of the Jubilee weather!

 

 

 

 

In July, we visited both Cholmondelely Castle and, shown here, Lane End Farm in Huxley,

 

 

Several members of the group visited One House Nursery at Rainow Cheshire in May 2011, followed by a visit to Bill Sowerbutt's garden (he is secretary of the Cheshire group).  Both gardens were throughly enjoyable

 

 

One of the visits the group made in 2010 was to Eaton Hall, Cheshire.
