Help us with fundraising
For the last few years we've been fundraising for the construction of a new conservatory in the Victorian garden. The previous conservatory had become too dangerous for people to enter. It was also an opportunity to enhance the theme of the garden by commissioning a Victorian-style building.
Money was raised through private donations and raffle ticket sales. At the start of this year the central body of the new conservatory was completed. An array of exotic plants were planted inside and it's now open for all of our visitors to enjoy.
However we're still raising funds for the construction of the two side wings of the building. The addition of these to the central structure will allow for more varied and unusual planting. It will also make the building complete again, as it was in its heyday.
If you would like to find out more about the conservatory project or make a donation, please call 01271 850296 or email us.
