Looking back over the summer of 2016, members enjoyed special visits to an Ambassador’s garden, the Queen’s Garden (at Buckingham Palace) and a float on a boat on a fine summer evening on the Serpentine as well as a perfumed reverie in the Hyde Park Nurseries. We were looked after on all these occasions by expert and very hospitable hosts.
We have plenty of fun to look forward to in the winter/spring and summer of 2017.
