Sunday afternoon, 3rd September saw overcast skies with rain never far away. Nevertheless it didn’t stop 35 friends turning up for Sandra Lea’s enthralling tree tour. After a ‘group photo’, Sandra led us around the Park describing the dozens of trees which most of us take for granted without ever stopping to wonder what they are. We found lime trees, a chocolate tree, a cider gum and a silk tree amongst many others.
Sandra was a really entertaining guide and described the trees in everyday language which made a really fascinating afternoon. A list of all the trees in Friary Park can be seen under the ‘Trees’ section of this website.
