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.

The 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.

For more information about joining the Friends of Waterperry Gardens, please contact Delia Shaw, 32 Poppy Road, Princes Risborough, Bucks, HP27 9DB

Telephone 01844 345834.

The 2018 programme is below.

Coffee mornings are held on the first Tuesday of every month, £2 for members and £4 for visitors. This includes a short talk and, when possible, a guided walk around the gardens.
