Outing to Dale Farm Dereham

Tuesday, August 18, 2020 - 14:00

Dear Garden Club Members,

Following on from my earlier email regarding the cancellation of our Summer Show on the 18th August I have really good news in that I have secured a private visit to Dale Farm gardens in Dereham for the same day at 2.00 pm. For obvious reasons they cannot supply teas/coffees and cakes as they normally do, but we can certainly bring our own. Cost is £5 per person and we would open the invitation up to any guests you may wish to bring.

Graham Watts, the owner of Dale Farm, gave the club a very interesting talk on Dale Farm last year entitled ' The Making of a Garden' and the slides whetted our appetite to see the gardens for ourselves. I have been before and I am sure you will not be disappointed when you see them.

You can check the garden out on the following link https://ngs.org.uk/view-garden/22394/.

They have had parties of upto 40 following Government Covid Guidelines so we can feel very safe during our visit.

This is a great opportunity to dust off the cobwebs after lockdown and it would be really great to see you all again - it's been a longtime, so if you can make the effort to join us that would be fantastic.

Payment would be on the day, but we really do need a good turn-out, otherwise we may have to cancel which would be a shame after the effort we have put in bringing this to you. Therefore, so we can gauge numbers, can I please ask you to confirm if you wish to join us and the names of any guests you wish to bring.

Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
