Coach Trips 2013

This year we are running three coach trips that we feel will be of great interest to members and friends of our society. These trips are open to all members and non-members are invited to join us at a small temporary membership charge of £2.

Our first trip takes place on Tuesday 7th May to the Royal Horticultural Society gardens at Wisley travelling by coach, which departs from Uplyme Village Hall at 7-45 am.    As our society is an affiliated member of the RHS, our members are able to visit these gardens without paying the normal admission charge so there will only be the coach fare of £15 per person to pay.  To book a place on this trip please contact Brian 07831 533580 by April 19th.

The flagship garden of the RHS, Wisley captures the imagination with richly planted borders, luscious rose gardens and the state-of-the-art Glasshouse. Gifted to the Society in 1903, Wisley has evolved over time into a world-class garden. In the trials fields, the finest flowers and vegetables are identified from the countless new introductions. Elsewhere in the garden, cultivation techniques are tried and tested, and a series of model gardens answers the needs of a variety of conditions and circumstances.

Monday 17th June trip to Hidcote Manor and/or Kiftsgate Court Gardens departing by coach from Uplyme Village Hall 7-30 am. These two gardens are within walking distant of each other with entry charges of £8-50 to Hidcote (or free if you are a National Trust member), and £6 to Kiftsgate which is not an NT garden. These entry fees will be paid direct by members on arrival and the cost of the coach £13 is payable in advance. To book a place on this trip please contact Brian 07831 533580 by June 1st.

Tuesday 10th September trip to Avebury Manor and Gardens (National Trust) departing by coach from Uplyme Village Hall at 8am Entrance to gardens is £9 payable on arrival or free to NT members. The coach fare £11 is payable in advance. To book a place on this trip please contact Rob 01297 631664 by 1st September
