On Wednesday September 30th we will be visiting the National Collection of Autumn-flowering Asters at Picton Garden near Malvern and the Museum of Royal Worcester Porcelain in Worcester.

Full details of both trips are included in the accompanying flyers. They can be booked separately or together (in which case a £5 discount applies).
