Garden Club plan to visit Highgrove House

The Garden Club is hoping to arrange a visit to the gardens of Highgrove House, the home of King Charles III in early summer at the beginning of the rose season.

The Gardens are very special and popular. The journey takes approx. l hr 45 minutes. Guided tours are compulsory, each of 30 visitors, and cost £30 per person. There are restaurants that can be viewed online.

Due to the current economic situation to hire a private bus the cost of the day would be approximately £60 to include the entrance fee to Highgrove House. Booking a visit is open from the 1 February, and dates soon become fully booked.

However, we need to know if there is enough interest from the Garden Club Members, and indeed any non-members within the Garden Club District who would also like to join us for this special trip. If you are interested, please contact Sue Rotheram, Secretary, as soon as possible, either by phone on 01823 401512  or by email at

The next Garden Club plant sale will take place on Sunday 19 May 2024! Please think of us when you divide plants or sow seeds. More details later.
