As soon as we advertised this visit, it was immediately booked up with our maximum of 20 people. Fortunately when I asked Kit what could be done she and Tom agreed that they could divide us into two groups of 20 and we were fully booked again in no time.
So, as arranged, we met at the Victoria Gate just before 11 am on 28 February and walked up to the Davies Alpine House to meet Tom and Kit. We divided into two groups. Tom took one round the Davies Alpine House and the rockery, Kit taking the other group into the Alpine Yard, an area not open to the general public, and then we swapped over.
