Trip to Borough Market and Southwark Cathedral

Headley Venture Group arranged a trip to Borough Market in London on 10 August 2018. Transport was provided by Candy tours in the form of a mini-bus, and 10 members and a friend came along. It is a bustling  part of London, and the quiet atmosphere of Southwark Cathedral next door made a calming contrast.

Jack Salway’s garden 15 August 2017

The club visit to this tropical garden was well attended. Jack was most welcoming, allowing us to use his “shed” to make tea and coffee, and to roam around his garden all day. So many of the plants are exotic, growing to a good height in many cases, which gave the garden the feel of a jungle, especially as it was a hot day.  Look at the photos taken by some of the members who visited to get an idea of this  unusual place.
