Daffodil Walk March 2004

Report from Lofty

I was pleasantly surprised by how many of you turned up for the ‘Daffodil Walk’ on Sunday 7th March. Around seventy people joined me for an hour’s walk through the ‘wilderness’ that was once the formal gardens of Ecton Hall. I pointed out various items of interest including the ‘Handkerchief Tree’ and the ‘Gazebo’. I hope that you enjoyed this opportunity to see parts of Ecton that are normally not open to the public.

We would like to thank Lofty, as it gave an opportunity for us all to see the private woodland of the Estate. We also raised £120 for the Village Hall refurbishment and had an enjoyable tea and cakes at Rectory Farm House.
