Outing to Waterperry Gardens on 17th February 2018
This was the first outing of the year. It was a lovely morning, slighty cool but the sun was shining.
We had a very quick journey to the gardens and our coach was met by a guide who came on board and told us little about Waterperry. We were all given a bright pink sticker and then we were able to go and explore. Many made their way to the café, which was very busy all day. Some went to the gardens and the snowdrops first. There were not as many snowdrops as some venues we had been to in the past. We understand that they are nurturing them and that in 3 years time they will have a very splendid show.
Waterperry has more than beautiful gardens, it is a magical place, with a walled garden, garden shop, gift barn and potting shed, an art gallery, real life museum, Saxon church, and the house which is open on certain days of the week.
The museum was fascinating and had many items which we could relate to from our youth.
They now have a good sized Amphitheatre where they put on productions such as The Magic Flute and Pirates of Penzance.
Several of the group bought snowdrops and other gardening utensils.
We had a good journey home and all said they had enjoyed the visit. Pam
