Chris & Pamela Hendy, organisers and the driving force behind the day have asked to make the following statement:

“Following a very successful Gardens Open Day last Sunday, Pamela Hendy would like  to thank all those ladies who  worked so very hard  in the kitchen all afternoon serving teas to our many visitors, clearing tables and washing up which was very hard work.   She would also like to thank all the very generous people who offered and made cakes and scones for the event, and the overwhelming generosity of people who, when they realised we were running short of everything, dug down into their fridges, deep freezes and cake tins to provide desperately needed reinforcements. The support was wonderful and much appreciated.”
