Events & Volunteer Days
Sunday 13th August - Heritage Open Day
We will be opening the grounds on Sunday 13th September for Heritage Open Day. Due to Covid 19 we have to restrict numbers and have put other measures in place. This is to enable our supporters to view the completed restoration work from a distance, take in some fresh air and find out the latest from our Trustees. We will also have at this event a limited number of Craft Stalls, Catering and our own Bric-a-Brac stall which is raising money for the Potting Sheds. There will be a public toilet in place at this event. Please note the following:

Future Events In 2020
Due to the continuing development work and Covid 19 restrictions we have decided that our usual Haunted Autumn Event and Tree week event are cancelled.
However, we are proposing to hold an Open Day on Sunday 15th November with some limited activity. More will follow on this when arrangements have been made.
Please note that as the restoration work on the Hall is currently going on, we have restricted access to the Grounds and we are not always able to run our events as previously. We regret that our woodland paths may not be suitable for disabled visitors in wheelchairs at this time. We also advise that in the winter months visitors should come in suitable footwear as some of the newly created paths may become muddy at times.
