Bookings now open for our Summer Trip to Sissinghurst on Wednesday 1 August: Sissinghurst is a National Trust garden and grounds. Historic, poetic, iconic; a refuge dedicated to beauty. Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson fell in love with Sissinghurst Castle and created a world renowned garden. Vita Sackville-West, the poet and writer, began transforming Sissinghurst Castle in the 1930s with her diplomat and author husband, Harold Nicolson. Harold's architectural planning of the garden rooms, and the colourful, abundant planting in the gardens by Vita, reflect the romance and intimacy of her poems and writings.  Click here for more detail and a booking form.

Wednesday, 22 August we have a very personal visit to West Dean Gardens.  This has been organised by committee member Penny Sydenham who works in the offices at West Dean and she will be leading a tour of the gardens.  This will be a car share trip with a start time of 9.45 from the usual Crossfields carpark.  The tour will be for roughly an hour between 11.00 am and 12 noon and then you could enjoy lunch in their cafeteria or, as there are outside tables and chairs, take a picnic.  The return time will be left open depending on your car share arrangements.  The cost per person is £7.50 and bookings should reach Lesley Buckley no later than Wednesday 15 August.  Click here for full details and booking form.
