As many of you know we’re hosting a series of events to raise money for The Christie – the charity we’re supporting this year. We’re aiming to raise £10,000 to help the work of the Endocrinology Unit as they continue their research into pancreatic cancer.
On Saturday and Sunday, 6th and 7th June, we’ll be inviting our clients, friends and guests to the Open Gardens at Moss Wood.
June is the time of year when the gardens are at their absolute best, so if you – or anyone you know – would like to an invitation then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us, and we’ll do our very best to save one for you.
There will, of course, be tea and cakes on offer – and on the Saturday there’ll also be the chance to take part in a Gardening Forum, which will be hosted by Cheshire’s leading gardening expert, Sam Youd.
Sam started his gardening career at the age of eight, ultimately becoming Head Gardener at Tatton in 1983. He oversaw the restoration of the Italian and Rose Gardens, and his restoration of the Japanese Garden at Tatton has been rated as the best restoration of a Japanese garden in Europe. As a result, Sam was made an Associate of Honour by the Royal Horticultural Society.
Sam now writes, broadcasts and travels extensively, continually adding to his encyclopaedic knowledge of gardening. There is simply no-one better to answer questions about gardening in Cheshire and to guide you round the gardens at Moss Wood. The Gardening Forum will start at 2pm on Saturday.
We look forward to welcoming old and new friends over the two days: hopefully the sun shines on us and we can raise a significant amount to support The Christie.
