May in the Gardens

With the weather warming up and not one but two bank holidays to enjoy, we have a number of exciting things to look forward to.

May the 1st and 2nd will see Hennis Sweet Treats offering delicious Dorset Cream Teas on the South Front Lawns. Why not drop by and enjoy a “cuppa” overlooking the 27 acres of rolling Dorset countryside?

The Minterne Annual Spring Fair will take place on the 15th May from 11am-4:30pm with a variety of craft, plant and cake stalls, a tombola, classic car show, longbow demonstration and RNLI souvenirs available. The event is held in support of the RNLI.

Any donations of cakes and tombola prizes are very much appreciated. We also welcome anyone who would like to run a stall of their own or exhibit a classic / vintage car, please contact Andy or Hillary on 07967 898654.
