We just can’t believe that S.H.I.P has been busily working within the Gardens for one year now. What a year We are so proud of our achievements to date and are looking forward to the year ahead.

To celebrate we invited people to join us in the museum to share their memories of Southchurch Hall Gardens through photos.

Archives from the Council were on show as family photos and memories. One of our members, Barbara, kindly did a flower arranging display. One budding florist, Kaitlin 7 years, joined in. We had lots of happy winners of our fabulous tombola too.
