TURNING JAPANESE - 29 March 2017

Extra chairs needed to be put out on Wednesday 29th March at Rushden Village Hall when Caron Lawton, curator of The Japanese Gardens at Cottered, talked about the garden from its inception in 1923 and compared pictures of then and now. Herbert Goode bought the garden in 1903 with no intention of changing it but after visits to Japan he brought over a Mr Kitsumoto to be in charge of design with the stunning results one can see today.

 The next meeting will be on Thursday 29th June when Mike Thomas will be taking us On Safari!
