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







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.
