Visit to RHS Wisley – 18th July

Our annual visit to Wisley will be on Tuesday 18th July.

The trip is free. Lifts can be arranged.

We arrive about coffee time and spend a most enjoyable day in the gardens and usually come home laden with  beautiful plants from the garden centre. There is also the opportunity to join a group tour (optional but costing £3) that lasts about an hour. Please contact Pat Dark (patdark13@yahoo.co.uk) if you would like to come.
