Despite some uncertain forecasting the weather stayed dry for 24 members of the FU3A Discovering Wessex Group who visited the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens and Arboretum in Romsey on Friday 8th April.  They met for coffee first in the main café before venturing out to explore the 180 acres of woodland and various gardens – where the clouds gradually thinned out and some welcome sunshine broke through.

The gardens are well laid out and were full of Spring flowers as can be seen in the attached photographs. Many members partook of a nice lunch before returning home later in the afternoon, after a very enjoyable day out.
