We had a great day on Saturday and hope you enjoyed the opening of the Windmill and Lighthouse followed by the Rhododendron walk.
I would like to thank the Friends, members of the committee and Nic our ranger for making these events possible and I would particularly like to thank Mandy and Stephen Pickles for opening the Lighthouse to the Friends.
We are so lucky to have these historic buildings still in existence for all to enjoy and with the help of the Friends they will be here for a long time to come. The history of both of these remarkable structures is fascinating as I am sure you found out on the day.
I must say that I found the Rhododendron walk in the afternoon very interesting indeed, I had no idea that such a variety of these plants were on the Hill however, thanks to the huge depth of knowledge shown by Stephen Lyus who conducted the walk, we were all educated significantly enough to grow our own! (with a little more help from Stephen I think). A big thank you to Stephen and let’s hope there are more walks like this in the future.
If ayone would like further information on the Windmill, Lighthouse, Rhodies or anything else, just have a look around the website.
Thank you very much for your support and hope to see you again soon.
