The blooms weren’t going to be seen by our visitors so it seemed like the best way to bring some happiness to those really in need of a lift in spirits.

Garden and Grounds manager Guy Lucas said “We’re delighted by the response we have received from all those that were given a bunch of flowers from our gardens. These included NHS Care Packages, Hailsham Crisis support and those in need in the Herstmonceux community. We look forward to seeing everyone back in the gardens and grounds at sometime later this year.”
