The walk will take place at 2pm (meet 1.50pm in the garden’s car park) and will be led by Mark Hyde, who is not only a member of Reps but also a very knowledgeable leader of the Tree Society of Zimbabwe.

Afterwards, starting at 4pm, there will be a high tea (teas, coffees and a selection of teatime snacks made by the wonderful Hesbe Chivers) on the Tada Terrace at Reps, the charge for which is $10, or $8 for Reps and Tree Society members.

Payment can be made on the day, but everyone must book in advance so that numbers are know, please. To book, please contact Lynn Buckingham at Reps (Monday to Friday between 8am and 4.30pm) – call (04) 336706 or 335850 or e-mail, or by e-mailing
