Recent GDT events….

Were you there?

Did you join us?

at one of our fab and fun events, like our Annual Plant Fair, courtesy this year of our friends at Hush Heath, and thanks to our amazing and loyal stall holders who made it happen?

So far this year we’ve enjoyed:

Wonderful weather for Canterbury Cathedral Open Gardens, of which we were a beneficiary, and lousy weather for the opening of Fursdon House gardens in Devon, of which we were also a beneficiary. We are grateful to them both for their support.

Our Chairman, Mrs Felicity Seton, received a very generous cheque from the Dean & Chapter of Canterbury Cathedral. Pictured representing the Dean & Chapter are: Canon Emma Pennington, Canon Missioner, Mrs Ann Reardon, Mr Philip Oostenbrink, Mrs Jocelyn Prebble

A gloriously English Open Garden with Cream Teas in a fabulous private garden overlooking Bodiam Castle, thanks to the kindness of Mr & Mrs Graham Peters.

Fascinating talks from Hugh Willing CBE about the celebrated artist Marianne North and Simon Ginnaw, who took us on a virtual tour of Kent & Sussex’s flora and fauna: and we were enthralled too by the journalist and writer Daniel Hannan at a talk and luncheon of which we were one of the 3 benefitting charities.
