Coach Trip 2018

On 12 May we set off on our first coach trip of the year. Our trip was to RHS Hyde Hall, the largest of the RHS gardens and is near Chelmsford in Essex. There were 40 members with family and friends and one young lady under three years old.
It has been four years since our last visit to Hyde Hall and a lot has changed. There is a new Winter Garden, a Global Growth Vegetable Garden with a new glass house in its centre, Big Sky Meadows, with wildflowers in good colour at this time of year. Hyde Hall is known for spotting hares and we were lucky enough to see one amongst the wildflowers.
Some of our members used the new restaurant facility, which is well located with views across the gardens.
