After the tour everyone retired to a Marquee for a drinks reception and lunch which was, by coincidence, supervised by a nephew of Past Master Peter Cooper!

A vote of thanks was proposed by Past Master John Price and applauded by all present.

After lunch there was plenty of time for further exploration of the 300 acres that comprise this garden.

Although grey skies were overhead luckily the rain held off and the visit was considered a great success by all who attended.
