News: "Event surpassed my expectations"

News: Flower arranging day

27th September 2018

Sarah says: "We all had a fabulous time, Claire not only showed us how to create our beautiful baskets but we also learned so much about the flowers and plants - it was a really interesting day. We were lucky enough to have gorgeous sunny weather so Claire took us outside to look at the gardens and collect foliage.   We were so well looked after and although we didn't know each other we all had a lovely day together.
