Patron Event at Woolbeding Garden near Midhurst

604 SDS Patrons Event   31 July 2014On Thursday 31 July the society was pleased to have the opportunity to invite Patrons to an exclusive evening at Woolbeding Garden.

After tea and short addresses by our President Baroness Whittacker and the National Trust’s Petworth House General Manager Rob Jackson we were shown around this extraordinary garden by the head gardener Paul Gallivan.

This 26-acre garden is the creation of Mr Simon Sainsbury and Stewart Grimshaw in conjunction with garden designers Lanning Roper and the Bannermans and, still very much a private garden, is only open to the public two days a week.

If you would like to have the opportunity to join these exclusive events in the future why not consider becoming a Patron of the society?  For details please contact the office on 01798 875073 or email info@southdownssociety.org.uk.
