There is to be another Garden Opening in aid of Hazels Footprints this Spring at Baddingsgill, West Linton in Peeblesshire on Sunday 25th May by kind permission of Gavin and Elaine Marshall. They have an Opening every year as part of Scotlands Garden Scheme of their beautiful woodland garden 1,000 feet up in the Pentland Hills above West Linton – a stunning situation. Woodland and riverside walks, several re-claimed recently. Bluebells, azaleas and rhododendrons. Water garden. Treasure Hunt for children (of all ages) If you are anywhere near the area on that date wed love to have your support if you can come along as 40% of the proceeds go to HFT.
Trustee Ben Newman, not content with driving to Mongolia in a Mini a couple of years ago, has secured two entries in the Africa Rally which is run in December and is even more of a mad-cap idea to try and get from London to Cameroon by any route in a car of less than 1000cc engine size.
