Kirtling Picnic in the Pews

Twigs Way and Phil Christie at Kirtling Church for Lord Fairhaven celebration

Tuesday 18 June 2019

As it happened, the rain came for our summer event at Kirtling Tower but, with true Dunkirk spirit, we made a tactical retreat for a wonderful picnic in the pews of Kirtling All Saints’ church. With memorable speeches from CGT chair, Twigs Way, and Gardens Trust Life Vice-President, Gilly Drummond, we celebrated Lord Fairhaven’s 25 years of support for CGT, rounded off with some scrumptious cake and a choice of Prosecco or a non-alcoholic Summer Punch. Lord Fairhaven was presented with a disease-resistant Ulmus x ‘Regal’ and gave a gracious acceptance speech. More in the next Newsletter!

We are pleased to acknowledge support from Bidwells for this event.
