Following my mini recruitment drive I can now inform that I was very successful and am looking forward to working with my new staff members, and welcoming back the existing ones. Thank you to all others that applied.
We will be re-opening the cafe on the 1st of April.
In the meantime the Gardens are still open every day of the week, entrance fees to be put in the honesty box on the other side of the blue entrance gate. The snowdrops are now out!
We have also appointed a new Head Gardener, Paul o’ Byrne, whom you may see around the gardens. He is working hard to get the garden ready for the Spring season. The ‘little fireman’ pond is currently undergoing a clean out of overgrowth and the fountain should be back in working order. He is more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
Back in October a biomass heating system was put in to heat the Plas house, the cafe, the Orangery, the greenhouse, and some of the surrounding houses. This was done with minimum damage to the gardens, thank you to Keith W. Jones and ESP.
