Coach Trip - Batsford Arboretum and Kiftsgate Court Gardens

Sunday 29th July Coach trip to Batsford Arboretum and Kiftsgate Court, West Midlands.

This year’s outing will take in two lovely locations starting with Batsford Arboretum and Garden Centre and moving on to Kiftsgate Court. Batsford Arboretum in Gloucestershire is home to one of the largest private tree and shrub collections in the country. There are 56 acres of woodland garden to explore, plus an award-winning visitor centre with a gift and plant shop, and cafe.

Kiftsgate is set on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment and is the creation of three generations of women gardeners. It features several rare plants and shrubs including the world famous Kiftsgate rose.

We will leave from outside the entrance to the Whitemoor allotments on Wilkinson Street at 8.30 a.m. The journey will take approximately 2.5 hours including a comfort break, and we will spend a few hours at Batsford before making the short journey (c.30 minutes) to Kiftsgate Court. We should arrive back in Nottingham by 7.30 p.m. at the very latest.

The cost per person will be £30.00 to include travel and entrance fees. PAYMENT DUE BY FRIDAY 29th JUNE PLEASE. Contact Jo Birchmore jobirchmore@yahoo.co.uk or 0115 9606870 if you would like to reserve a place.
