Special welcome for centenarians
A special group of visitors will be enjoying a trip to Wakehurst Place this week, Kew 's country estate in the heart of the West Sussex countryside
The group from the Eversfield Home in Reigate , who are visiting Wakehurst on Friday (May 15) will include a 102-year-old, along with three 99 year- olds (two of whom are a couple who have been married for 74 years).
Lisa Dayman, who co-ordinates social events for the residents at Elizabeth Finn Homes, decided the glorious gardens at Wakehurst, near Haywards Heath, would be perfect for a day out.
Staff at Wakehurst are looking forward to welcoming the group and ensuring they enjoy their visit to the estate. They are due to arrive at around 11am.
Andy Jackson, Head of Wakehurst Place, said: "We welcome all ages at Wakehurst, from babes in arms to centenarians, and we are delighted the group has chosen to visit us. We hope they have a wonderful day here."
