In early 2013, the Friends grabbed the opportunity to develop the Monument Garden ticket kiosk into a plant shop. Here are some views of the kiosk as it was then:
In the first year we were on a steep learning curve! A team of enthusiastic volunteers set about staffing and running the shop. The start of 2014 introduced a link with Caulders Nurseries through owner Colin Barrie, so we started the year in great style! Here are some photos of us setting up the shop:
We are now well established and improving all the time with a lovely range of plants, crafts, drinks and ice creams. The gardens are beautiful to visit, surrounding the magnificent monument. and you will find friendly volunteers to chat with as you make you purchases!
