GGLT Annual General Meeting
As most of you will be aware, John Sales, one of our Patrons, very sadly died on 29th December. As Head of Gardens at the National Trust for almost 30 years, his contribution to their management and conservation made its gardens the envy of the world, both for their variety and for the excellence of their keeping. He transformed the National Trust itself into a model of conservation that many other countries have striven (generally without success) to emulate. The Gloucestershire Gardens & Landscape Trust was privileged to have had him as a member, Patron and staunch supporter for many decades. To celebrate his life, we are dedicating the 2023 AGM to him, and hope that as many of you as possible will be able to join us and raise a glass to his memory.
This year’s AGM will be held At Netherfields, near Wotton-under-Edge, in GGLT Committee Member Margie Hoffnung’s garden on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment. From her lawn you can see for more than 30 miles out over the River Severn, into Wales and as far as the Black Mountains. She has a 4.5 acre wildflower meadow which should be approaching its peak in early June, and members will be able to walk up through the meadow from their cars* to enjoy some one of GGLT’s delicious teas and wander around Margie’s informal garden
There is a walk uphill to the property. Please indicate in the booking if you need to park on the property drive. Limited spaces available.
