Four Parishes Arts Society - May 2004
anticipation of our visit to Kew in June, our talk this month was on the history
of Kew Gardens. We were extremely fortunate to have a real expert in the person
of Laura Ponsonby, who has worked at Kew for 23 years and has astounding
knowledge of all aspects of the gardens. She gave us an enthralling talk
covering not only the history of the gardens but also an insight of what is in
store for us on our visit. All this was illustrated with excellent slides. This
very valuable information will give extra meaning and direction to our tour,
especially as she guided us through areas which could easily be missed. We shall
have three guides to steer us through the gardens on Tuesday, 8 June. The coach
leaves Amport Green at 8.30 a.m.
Annual Exhibition on 19 June is at Monxton Village Hall with Strawberry Teas in
the grounds of Veronica Rushworth-Lund's house behind the hall. David Bucknill
would appreciate it if exhibitors would return completed forms to him as soon as
Veronica Bacon has a few spaces left for the visit to Kew and the one to Tyntesfield and Dyrham Park on 31 August. Anyone who is interested should contact her a.s.a.p. on 771285.
