Beauchamps: judging by the amount of cars in the car park it was visited by many people last Sunday. In the lovely warm sunshine it made wandering around Matti and Richard’s beautiful garden such a pleasure; (the cakes did look delicious but do not help when one has been on a diet for three months or more) I was just sipping tea overlooking the Brede Valley and looking upwards towards Icklesham, what a view! an ideal way of whiling away a Sunday afternoon. Indeed, you may now wish you had visited yourselves as this was the last time they would be opening in aid of St Michaels Hospice National Gardens Scheme
