The European Boxwood & Topiary Society Visit to Island Hall 6th July 2014

July 8, 2014

“I would like to thank you most sincerely both personally and on behalf of the EBTS Group, for allowing us to visit Island Hall last Sunday Morning. You were most generous with the welcoming coffee and biscuits and also very kind to let us see inside your wonderful house. The view if the garden from upstairs was indeed special and the house itself had a great atmosphere within it – just the sort of place we like to visit.

What a treat to walk round the gardens and feel the essence of what you have created. Thank you for taking the time to walk around with the Group to bring alive what you have developed at Island Hall. A fascinating history made alive by your enthusiasm and knowledge.

A wonderful visit which made up such an important part of our memorable AGM weekend in Cambridge.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Mark Hopkins”

The European Boxwood and Topiary Society, UK Chairman
