Meet at Sulby 6.00pm
Sulby Gardens was a late addition to our programme and the visit is limited to 30 people, at the request of the owner. I visited it on their annual apple day in October and loved it. I thought it would be a perfect place to visit on a summer evening and then I got a bit over ambitious and thought what would be really nice, would be to have a picnic there, if the owner was willing. It seemed a bit of a cheek at the time but, happily, she was. The garden is open to the public through the Yellow Book Scheme.
Due to the limit on numbers, preference will be given to Friends
