The venue for this month will be Winkworth Arboretum. I know we visited Winkworth earlier this year but we should now have the autumn. Daisy and I visited there recently and the colours had definitely ‘a way to go’ before being at their best.
We will meet at Spring Gardens Nursery Farm Shop/Cafe (as recommended by Jean MacWhirter). I suspect most of you already know it, but I have to admit to not really having been aware of it. However I called in there to suss it out and found them very welcoming and have booked a table for 10.
We will meet at 10:30 at the lovely dog-friendly Highdown Tearooms, which I am delighted to say reopened fairly recently. This, thanks to public outcry at their having to close last year, having been originally denied a renewal of their lease I understand.
