Summer seems to have got off to a good start, lovely weather and lots of guests.  We have just said goodbye to a party from Finland who spent a week of visiting gardens and local attractions, only to welcome 26 French children and their teachers on an exchange visit with our local primary school.  They are having an action packed week, water activities at Top Barn Farm yesterday, fish and chip supper last night in the Games room, delivered from The New Inn, sports today, Worcester tomorrow and then home for a rest. 

Open garden weekend at Clifton this weekend, outlying gardens open on Saturday and village on Sunday.  Should be an interesting weekend, as there are other activities and things to see including a model railway, church flowers, cream teas etc. all in aid of much needed funds for the church.
