Bucks Free Press: Gardener of the year visits Bourne End WI Gardener of the year visits Bourne End WI

A FORMER gardener of the year was welcomed to Bourne End earlier this week as he gave a talk to a new Women’s Institute.

Edwin Rye, the BBC Gardener of the Year in 2002, from Wendover, visited the Bourne End WI at St Dunstan’s Church Hall in Cores End, Bourne End, on Monday, June 9.

As well as giving a talk about the ‘Seasonal colour in the Garden’ he also displayed some plants and sold them to members of the WI.

This is one of the first talks the newly formed club has had with more still to come.

Organiser, Julie Wardell, said: "We had a very enthusiastic and large audience for his visit.

"I think we all left with plans on how to transform our gardens."

They will soon receive a show in jewellery making later on in the year and they will be given a photography masterclass in July.

The club currently meet on the second Monday of every month at 2pm in St Dunstan’s Church Hall. New members are welcome.
