Yes, it’s that time again! Time to don the winter woollies and join the Children’s Hospice South West Belstone and Area Friends’ Group for their popular annual Snowdrop Sunday. Andrews Corner, Skaigh Lane, Belstone will be open on Sunday 18th February from 11.00am until 4.00pm. Entrance £4, children free. Parking in nearby field.
Have you heard of galanthomania? Galanthomaniacs are people who are addicted to collecting snowdrops, sometimes paying hundreds of pounds just to get the latest unusual snowdrop. In 2015 someone bought Galanthus plicatus ‘Golden Fleece’ on eBay for £1390. It is very pretty. . . but at that price? We don’t think we have such an unusual snowdrop at Andrew’s Corner but who knows? Why not come and see if you can spot one among the 80 or so other varieties in the garden – some of which will be for sale.
As usual, there will be CHSW promotional goods for sale, as well as hot soup & bread, cheese scones, hot drinks and cakes; Indoor space available for those who prefer to view the garden or consume refreshments in relative warmth! So, we look forward to welcoming you when you help us, once again, to raise funds for this very worthy cause.
