ANNUAL HINTLESHAM GARDENING CLUB SUMMER OUTING

A trip is also organised every year to different gardens which in the past have included Marks Hall Arboretum and Gardens, Anglesey Abbey, Cambridge Botanic Gardens, The Old Vicarage in East Ruston, Norfolk, Barnsdale Gardens in Rutland and last year, Hyde Hall (photos below), RHS Wisley and this year, Pensthorpe Nature Reserve (see below).

Trip to Pensthorpe Nature Reserve - 16th July 2017.

49 People went on the trip and although the weather was a bit overcast with the occasional misty shower, a great time was had by all.

Lovely walks around the lakes watching all the ducks and geese. So many different breeds - wonderful sight to see them. There is a lot of conservation work going on as well. Such a great place to visit. Stephanie Coupland
