High demand meant that an extra Wild Flower walk was added on Friday 27th May in addition to the planned walk on Thursday 26th. Led by Simon Harrup both groups enjoyed walks through the eight acres of 'Natural Surroundings' on pleasant early summer evenings. A report and gallery are linked through previous events.

The first garden visit of 2016 was on Sunday 19th, June to Horsford Hall the home of David Pulling and Paul Clarke. Fortunately, in what had been a somewhat unsettled period weather wise, it was a warm bright afternoon and a large number of members enjoyed exploring the garden. A short report and gallery of pictures is linked under previous events.

Another Gala and another resounding success for the Norfolk Group. Sunday 5th March at East Tuddenham Village Hall saw the latest Spring Gala organised by Kathy Gray and supported by an army of members. 85 people attended and listened to two excellent lectures. The first was in the morning by Andrew Turvey, newly appointed Head Gardener at Hatfield House, about developments at Myddelton House in Enfield and Wrest Park. Following another of NPH's splendid lunches Troy Scott Smith, Head Gardener at Sissinghurt, spoke about two gardens he had worked at, The Courts in Willtshire, Bodnant and at length about his present garden and developments at Sissinghurst.

The Spring Plant Sale, the first of the group sales of 2017, took place at Hethersett Village Hall on Sunday, 30th April. A, thankfully, dry although rather breasy morning saw a huge number of people visit the sales field - probably the most NPH have seen attend one of their plant sales so far. After buying their plants many visitors enjoyed home made refreshments with bacon rolls being one of the favourite orders! A new gallery is linked under previous events.
