Friends of Waterperry

Charity No. 1071953

The Friends of Waterperry Gardens are a group of people who meet and hold social events throughout the year.

They Friends also provide valuable support by raising funds for projects around the estate, including helping to install the waterlily canal, raising money to replace the commemorative bench for the gardens founder, Miss Beatrix Havergal, and funding the new gates to the alpine garden.

Their last major project was the restoration of The Orange Tree House but the Friends aim to continue to help developing and maintaining the garden.

Friends of Waterperry Gardens get free entry to the ornamental gardens all year round, a programme of special events, 10% discount in the plant centre, a monthly coffee morning, quarterly newsletter and the chance to meet other garden enthusiasts.
