Garden Safari

The Garden Safari Group are delighted to be getting back to some kind of normality now that many of the gardens in Cornwall and Devon are open.

Due to the Lions’ Minibus being unavailable, the group will be focusing their program this year on local Charity gardens open in the area of South East Cornwall and the Devon border.

The four charities that cover a comprehensive selection of gardens to visit are: NGS Gardens, St. Luke’s Hospice Charity Gardens, Cornwall Hospice Gardens and the Cornish Wildlife Trust. It is hoped that attendance at these gardens will be smaller and safer compared to the more popular gardens across the county. Each month, a list of the gardens that are open will be sent to members who can attend as they wish. The entrance fee of £5 will be going to a good cause.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Garden Safari Group, then please contact Pauline at groupsInfo@looeu3a.org
