Seaforde Women’s Institute – June 0uting 2019

Posted June 19, 2019 by Quoile in News

Twenty six Seaforde ladies and friends went to Forde’s Estate for an evening outing. Mathew and his mother Lady Anthea Forde took us on a tour around the gardens explaining some of the plants and trees growing there, their history and provenance. These included a tree which Mathew’s great-grandfather had brought back from the Crimean War, two very old yew trees, a handkerchief tree and two very large Californian Redwoods. After a photo call we headed into the Garden House Café for a delicious fork supper and lots of chat. After our President, Jenny, thanked everyone for coming, especially our visitors, and a short bit of business, Mathew enthralled us with the history of the demesne and the village of Seaforde. Lorraine Bothwell gave a vote of thanks to Mathew and also to the ladies who provided the supper.
