Mansfield U3A Garden Visits group arranges a programme of visits to notable gardens during the warmer months.
We always happy to have suggestions, so do come and see us during the monthly meeting – especially if there is a garden you would like to visit or you know somewhere else within coach-outing range that you think would appeal to members.
Please view the Events page for details of future visits, contact Janet Whitlam on 01623 635607, or send a message to Marilyn Dibble using the bird link above right.
