Now 30 years old, Stockton Bury Garden is home to mature plantings and offers keen gardeners plenty of inspiration.

There are new plants every year – many of which you are able to buy from the plant sales area.

The garden sits at the heart of a working farm which was originally one of the Bury farms of the Benedictine Priory in Leominster. The dovecote and medieval barns remain important landmark features.

Tamsin Westhorpe, has now joined the gardening team. She has previously been deputy editor of Amateur Gardening magazine and Editor of The English Garden magazine.

The Riverside Inn at Aymestry is an authentic and atmospheric black and white 16th century timber framed inn set in the heart of the Herefordshire countryside surrounded by and overlooking the picturesque natural beauty of the River Lugg Valley.

aspire lunch

Ladies Who Lunch is a group of ladies from all over Worcestershire and the West Midlands who aspire to dine in all the best restaurants, both local to Worcestershire and on occasion further afield.

Over the past couple of years we have dined at Raymond Blanc's Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons and taken afternoon tea at both The Ritz and The Savoy.

Ladies of any age are welcome to join us, and occasionally we are able to invite husbands and partners, for example to Ludlow Races. And just so we don't feel too self-indulgent at most of our events we aspire to raise money for local charities and in particular Kemp Hospice

Most of our lunches comprise two courses (main and dessert), plus coffee/tea and two glasses of wine. Soft drinks are usually available as an alternative.

We travel to many of the events by coach, usually with pick-ups at The Lyttelton at Hagley or Stone Manor at Kidderminster. If our event is in the right direction we can also sometimes pick up at Sixways, Worcester.
