On Monday 30th June, over 200 friends and partners joined the TLS to celebrate its 20th birthday. Hosted by the National Trust at Ham House, along with patrons, Sir David Attenborough and Kim Wilkie, and cake (homemade by the staff at Ham House from ingredients from the garden).
Guests admire the gorgeous cottage garden at Ham House. Produce from the garden is used in the Cafe and Ham House staff used some to make cordials and chutneys for the party.
Despite the rain early on – the event was a resounding success and as the clouds lifted we were treated to a lovely evening.
TLS Chairman Cllr Paul Lynch welcomes the guests to the party and expresses his hopes for continued support and collaboration for the next 20 years, at least
