On Saturday 16th June we all had an enjoyable time wandering among the beautiful trees and surroundings in Saville Gardens, which is set in Great Windsor Park. The perfume that hit you when you approached the rose garden was incredible and made the day memorable.

On Monday 3rd October we were entertained by the amusing Eric Barnes who enlightened us on the history of Catsbrain Farm. With his 73 years at the farm he witnessed many changes, from the beginning with no gas, no electricity and no running water, to present day automation. Life it seems wasn’t always better in the good old days!

On Monday 16th May many of us were reminded of what life was like years ago with a talk by Pamela Clement on “Life from Victorian times onwards.”
She commented on the reasons why our ancestors cabbages grew so well ( something to do with having no inside toilets) and how everyday products were used as “cure alls” inside the house and in the garden.
