After my enjoyable experience at Suffolk Plant Heritage’s Autumn Fair, I was really pleased to hear from Helmingham Hall’s event manager – Katy Day.
Chairman, Maggie Thorpe, had forwarded her a copy of my blogpost for the event and Katy was delighted with my images, saying they were the best she had seen in her 10 years involvement with the fair. I was naturally delighted !
This prompted me to arrange a visit to see her; with the result being that I’m now going to officially photograph all the public events held at Helmingham, as well as providing year-round images of its Grade 1 Listed garden ( which normally open to the public only from May until mid-September).
Katy and her colleagues will be using my images for promotional purposes and also to provide an out of season insight into the life of the gardens – for its many devotees.
My cameras were packed ready for my trip to Sussex, it was a pleasant October day – and I had my ‘trusty’ companion Rusty the Labrador at my side. It made sense to start right then and there.
So follow me through the gates and read my October Blog …
