Autumn 2016

Friends of Bushey Rose Garden


After a somewhat ‘soggy’ start to the summer most of our seasonal events were been rain free! Yoga sessions on a Wednesday evening were initially interrupted by bad weather but they have yet again proved popular and well attended. This year Hertsmere Leisure also included some yoga sessions for children.

The Friends of the Rose Garden held their annual Garden Party in July, as part of the Bushey Festival. A ukulele band, ‘Katie and the Jumping Fleas’ and Arthur, an expert circus skills presenter kept visitors entertained and occupied throughout the afternoon!

A new addition to the Rose Garden events programme, organised by the Friends, has been free percussion workshops for young children. These were led by Debra from ‘Beat Building Ltd’ and offered the children the chance to enjoy making music in the beautiful surrounding garden.
