Welcome to our Web site!
I am sure you will enjoy visiting the gardens which, as a member, you are able to do on:
Monday to Thursday from 10am-3.30pm, Friday from 10am to 3.00pm (except on Bank Holidays and at other times when the University is closed.)
Take a leisurely stroll in the tranquil surroundings; take in the beauty of the many mature specimen trees; observe the changes as the seasons progress; learn of the wildlife habitat, or simply sit and enjoy the surroundings.
The Friends group also hold three meetings a year when members and guests come along to hear knowledgeable speakers on topics of horticultural interest. The details of these meetings will be announced in the quarterly Newsletter. They are friendly informal meetings where members are able to meet other members and have a chat during the break when refreshments are provided.
The Friends also hold an annual Open Day, usually around the third Sunday in May. This has been a resounding success with members and the visiting public alike. Should you wish to assist with the organisation of the open day, new helpers are always welcome. Volunteer helpers have always ensured its success by helping with the plant stall, refreshments or by growing/ providing plants for sale on the day.
