St Andrews Botanic Garden -Open Sunday 23rd November 2008
« on: November 02, 2008, 09:19:09 PM »
I thought you might be interested to hear of this event, taking place at the Botanic Garden of St Andrews University on Sunday 23rd November 2008 from 10.30am to 3,30 pm.

Entrance to the Garden (and some  car-parking) is on the Canongate and more parking can be found 400-500m away near the West Port.

There are some eighteen different mini-events and activities planned for the day, with subjects ranging from Music and Poetry to Conservation and Conker Matches ! Plenty aimed at children, too.
Sounds like a very good day out.
