Visit to Hilliers Gardens, October 2020

After two previous attempts were thwarted – first by Storm Miguel in June 2019, and more recently by Storm Alex – ITI Wessex members finally managed to visit these lovely gardens near Romsey in Hampshire, although sadly numbers were restricted to a group of 6 due to Covid-19 regulations.

But at least the sun shone on us this time, and the autumn colours were fantastic, especially the acers. It was a pleasure to spend a day appreciating nature’s beauty, but equally to be able to meet other Group members in person, after months of only communicating via Zoom coffee mornings during lockdown!
