Thank all of you
We would like to thank all of you for supporting the opening. We are delighted to report that we raised over a thousand pounds for the National Gardens Scheme.
The public were able to visit the enclosed courtyard gardens within the grounds of historic Charterhouse, which dates back to 1347. The English country garden style features roses, herbaceous borders, ancient mulberry trees and a small pond. Various garden herbs found there are still used in the kitchen today.
