Outings 2022


We have finally been able to resume Outings to Gardens.

Hammonds, our regular coach company, have gone to huge expense, fitting Aura air filters to all their vehicles. They filter the air and kill Covid particles. Face coverings are to be worn in transit. They can do temperature testing prior to boarding, hand sanitiser is provided on board.


As circumstances are different this year notification of Outings are sent to the membership via email or contacted by phone if no internet access. Bookings are only accepted for Members. If places remain available near to the date of the trip invitations may be extended to friends/relatives.

All the usual information on trip details, including the Gardens, how to book outings, where to find booking forms, the location of car parking and coach pick up places, are included in Spring Newsletters sent to members. Please retain these, especially if you only receive a paper copy, the Booking Form paper copy will be included with the Spring Newsletter. The Group website, accessible anytime, contains a wealth of detail about Outings, including all information required in order to book, maps of pick up locations and car parking.

Ashwood Nurseries - THURSDAY 24th February 2022

COST £32.00 per person - Depart Mount Street 8.00 am Depart David Lloyd, West Bridgford 8.15 am.

No stop enroute. This will include a behind the scenes tour of their Hellebore Propagation programme in the morning [and the chance to purchase some special hellebore plants] and a visit to John Massey’s private garden in the afternoon. This is a garden that looks spectacular throughout the year and I think we are all in need of some inspiration for the coming year. There is plenty to see and tempt you in the actual nursery. There is an excellent cafe and interesting undercover greenhouses and shops.

As in previous outings we will travel with Hammonds Coaches . This is a local firm who have invested in special air filters in every coach and thorough cleaning before the coaches leave. At present we are requested to use masks and hand sanitiser is provided.

More outings will appear here mid february
