Waterperry Gardens event in memory of staff

Waterperry Gardens is inviting friends and former students of its horticultural staff Jean Taylor and Ernie Bingham to an event planned to celebrate their lives. Both died in 2011.

Jean Taylor was assistant horticultural manager at the venue for seven years and Ernie Bingham taught the RHS level 2 course for many years.

On 25 January, a coffee morning at Waterperry's tea shop, Miss H's, will celebrate their lives from 10.30am.

Tickets cost £5 per person with proceeds going to Katherine House Hospice in Banbury, Marie Curie Cancer Care and the Macmillan Nurses.

Call Susie Hunt on 01844 337264 or email events@waterperrygardens.co.uk for tickets.
