Hillier Gardens March 26th

As all the local Mayors are coming to the end of this Mayoral year, the Mayor of test Valley, Councillor Dorothy Baverstock, decided to invite all of the Hampshire Mayors and Chairmen to an evening at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens in Romsey.

In company with the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, the Mayors of Gosport, Fareham, Winchester, Basingstoke & Deane, New Forest and Eastleigh, and the Chairmen of Hampshire and East Hants, we were given a brief tour of part of the Gardens by the director, Wolfgang Bopp.

We then went to Jermyn’s House, situated within the Gardens, for a very pleasant evening with a 2-course meal and cheese, with all of the ingredients coming from the Test Valley.

Both before, and during, the meal we were entertained by a caricaturist and a magician.

This was a great way of showing off the attributes of the Gardens and the Test Valley, and I will be sure to return to see the Gardens in all their glory when we get some warm weather.
