On a cold, grey and blustery June day, the garden played host to a coach load of Norwegian garden enthusiasts. Such was their enthusiasm, they weren't put of in the least by a grey and cold summer's day. Even when the coach driver couldn't make the turn up to Witton Hill, determination prevailed and they walked all the way from Horn Lane!! £500.00 was raised for charity and our visitors were delighted to see their national flag displayed as they enjoyed homemade afternoon tea - PTC style! Interestingly hardly any of them took milk with their tea or coffee. This was noted as we only remembered to get in extra milkl supplies at the 11th hour and so were left with surpliss milk! They were charming people with a genuine interest in the garden.
A big thank you to our helpers: Lindy, Gabby, Jenny & Pauline who served teas in the freezing temperatures and washed up in a very warm kitchen! An EXTRA big thank you to Pat Finch who made trays of exquisite cakes despite her very recent hip surgery!!
