Our charity talks were a lot of fun, and we hope that those who came enjoyed their visit and also learned something about the topics covered. Luckily the rain stayed away for most of this year, so we could actually get into the garden and enjoy some sunshine.

We raised £811.80, most of which went to the National Gardens Scheme (who also contribute to many charities such as Macmillan Nurses, Marie Curie and Crossroads) plus smaller amounts to the NW Cancer Research, Claire House, Chester MESH and FORME.

So, Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year to all our supporters and hope to see you again in 2014.

Chris, Paul, Phil and Sarah.
