2016 Garden

SPRING

On Sunday 20th March, we held our annual Easter Egg Hunt in the garden.  It was a bit chilly but fortunately the afternoon stayed dry.  The event was enjoyed by more than 20 children, finding the 80 easter eggs hidden around the garden.

We were delighted to be awarded GOLD in this year's Richmond and Twickenham in Bloom in the Environmental Garden category!

Another resident of the road won a SILVER GUILT AWARD in the "best frontage" category for her lovely garden display.

 

AUTUMN

We were very upset when our two resident ducks disappeared from our garden.  Despite lots of appeals they never returned.
