We had a splendid visit on Monday. The Arboretum was looking really beautiful and, although the weather could have been better - it could have been worse! - we were all enthused by Andrew Beale’s guidance. He obviously loves the place and we could feel his enthusiasm and love for the trees his family and he have planted and care for.
We marvelled at and admired his knowledge and we learned a lot on our tour.
I have written to Andrew separately but want to thank you very much, Jane, for all your help in organising our very successful visit. We would not like to have missed it and, in fact, several of the ladies are already intending to return - probably in May as recommended by Andrew.
Our Cedar Tea was delicious, the table beautifully set and the service very efficient and pleasant. May I ask you please pass on our thanks to the staff who looked after us so well.
Thank you again, Jane. From our arrival to our departure we were met with pleasant smiles and polite service.
With best wishes,
