You are invited to bring a vase of cut flowers from your garden to contribute to a display of community flowers along with your nasturtiums and borage. Unfortunately our flower arranging tutor has had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances.

There will be a prize for the Best Kept Nasturtiums!


Do bring along picnics and  blankets if you fancy bringing your lunch to the event. Lunch is not available this season at the hotel, however there will be the most fabulous cakes and coffee, tea and soft drinks.
