2017 - May 13th
Return to Dairy main page

On May 13th 2017, the glasshouse was officially opened by Bunny Guinness. The funds for the glasshouse came from the generous legacy of the late John Drake MBE. John was a tireless supporter of the work to re-establish the garden and he is sadly missed. Before the official opening of the glasshouse, guests invited by the trustees met over a buffet lunch. The garden was open to the public and Bunny Guinness cut the ribbon. A harpist provided by Ramsey Arts Festival entertained everyone for their first viewing of the glasshouse with its new trompe-l'il trellis. The new garden paths were also on show.
