Thanks to the hard work of the gardens team £425 was raised for the charities supported by the National Garden Scheme during an open day on Saturday.

Around 70 visitors took the opportunity to tour the gardens of the College’s Wychfield Site which is usually closed to visitors.

Samantha Hartley, head gardener at Trinity Hall, said: “Tea and cakes were served in the pavilion by my sister and my niece, who did a sterling job.  We had plants for sale and Chris (deputy head gardener) and I each led a tour of the garden.  Betty and William, our seasonal gardeners were also on hand to help the day run smoothly.

“The sun shone for us, despite a very unpromising, drizzly start to the day. Thanks to all members of the gardens team who worked incredibly hard to get the gardens looking tip-top.”

The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,500 exceptional private gardens in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands, and raises impressive amounts of money for nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake.
