NGS day was a dry day this year and we had about 120 visitors and raised a good amount of money for the NGS. Volunteers and staff worked hard manning the front desk, serving tea and cake, chatting to visitors while gardening, doing garden tours and selling plants and produce and gardening. The bee keeper, Michael Green, came in with the observation hive and talked about bee keeping and sold Chastleton honey. Jean did a wonderful job making and selling cakes. All in all a successful day.
Thanks to all those involved.
