Fagus is 25

Fagus Club is 25 years old this year. To celebrate this we are holding a garden party on Sunday 15 July at Little Naish, Clapton in Gordano, the garden of Anne and Peter Hills. A delightful afternoon in a lovely garden with music, food and of course because it is Fagus – cake! A total of 120 tickets will be available for Fagus members and will be on sale at the meeting on 19 March onward. Limited car parking will be available on the adjoining field, but car share is encouraged where possible.  Anne said to look out for the resident tortoise that sometimes makes an appearance!

Fagus members gardens open for charity under the NGS (yellow book) scheme this year:-

Julia Thyer’s garden – Fernbank, High Street, Congresbury, BS49 5JA

A slightly crazy but delightful 1/3rd acre garden full of surprises with conservatory, greenhouse, potting shed, writer’s hut, Bunty house, ponds with trickling water, hundreds of potted plants and more. Delicious home made teas.

Open for the NGS on Sunday 3rd June from 10.30am-5pm. £4 entry, children free.

Park at The Ship & Castle or in Broad Street. Fernbank is 100yds along the High Street on right after the church. Drop-off only at the house. Not suitable for wheelchairs.
