There were about 30 people on each of the visits to The Priory at Lamberhurst in June and we were very lucky that both afternoons were fine and warm. The garden was looking as lovely as ever, the roses and peonies were particularly beautiful.  Mrs McAlpine and her Head Gardener, Tilly, took

us on a tour of the garden and answered all our questions – mainly names of plants! Most people also went and had a look at the vegetable garden too.The afternoon ended with tea and delicious cakes being served while Mrs McAlpine continued to chat to us. Mr McAlpine also joined us for tea and

cake! The McAlpines were very appreciative of the monies raised for the Hospice from the 2 visits.
