Summer holidays have arrived and, as I write, so have the inevitable grey shades of Cornish sunshine.
Luckily the mizzle is countered by the blue hues of the hydrangea valley, which are looking fantastic and all the better for a drop of rain. Darren talks more about this in his August diary. The sound of laughter and excitement as families & children explore the garden and beach provides the soundtrack this month; our Legs and Wings family trail runs through until the end of September if you want to keep the kids amused while visiting.
Two important points to share with you this month:
With the garden becoming busier again this year, and having listened to a good deal of feedback, I’m pleased to announce that I’ve agreed with our Trustees that Trebah will once again remain open seven days a week year-round. We will therefore not be returning to five day opening at the end of October. The only planned closure in future will be 24-26 December annually to give the team a three-day break over Christmas.
As you’ll be aware, since Covid Trebah has remained a cash-free attraction and our team have been asking visitors to pay with card. To make things easier for everyone in future I’m pleased to say we have started taking cash again. Card payment is still preferred but cash is equally welcome.
Thanks for your ongoing support for Trebah; the team and I look forward to welcoming you again soon.
Best wishes, Jon
