Having recently moved into the Parish of Marwood, I found myself frequenting Marwood Garden and the Tea Rooms, and both quickly became a favourite spot of mine – one of my highlights last year was watching the Folksy Theatre’s performance of The Tempest with my fiancé, mother, father and grandmother!
Having experienced a little of what Marwood Gardens has to offer to both locals and tourists alike, I was very excited when I was offered the Business Manager role here.
I think that in this day and age, the importance of places like Marwood Gardens is being increasing recognised, both for humankind and wildlife alike. The ability to escape from sitting in front of a screen and to be inspired by nature, such as the Wisteria Arbor, or having the opportunity to perch on a bench in front of magical views, listening to the buzzing of bumblebees, providing much needed tranquillity and the opportunity for quiet contemplation.
I cannot wait to get stuck in, learn more about this magical garden and it’s history, and to meet all of our wonderful visitors when our gates re-open!
